Population Workforce, and Employment in Florida: 1990-2000The State of Florida The U.S. Census Bureau reports that Florida’s population rose from 12,937,926 in 1990 to 15,982,378 in the year 2000, The increase of 3,044,452 persons comprises a 23.5% growth rate over 1990’s population, and represents a 2.14% annual geometric growth rate. Rapid population growth remained the most significant factor in Florida’s economy during the past decade. Population growth was accompanied by growth in the work force and in employment. The Local Area Employment Statistics program (LAUS) estimates Florida’s labor force increased 15.8% during the decade and employment grew by 18.6%. Population growth is associated with increasing output and employment in many industries. Over the decade of the 1990s utilities transportation &communications, trade, financial services, personal services and business services, and public administration have responded to population growth. Industry divisionEmployment Change (%) December 1990-2000 Agriculture 5.0% Mining/Construction 6.4% Manufacturing -10.0% Transportation, Communications & Utilities25.9% Trade15.9% Finance, Insurance & Real Estate17.3% Services41.2% Public Administration & Other26.2% Florida’s Metropolitan Areas Population continues to rise in Florida’s 20 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs). Table 1 reports that Florida’s MSAs added 2,814,122 additional residents during the 1990s. This represents 92% of total population growth in Florida during the decade. Most growth occurred in the six largest MSAs. The six largest MSAs comprised 63.7% of Florida’s population in 1990. The same six MSAs experienced a combined population increase of 1,892,975—62% of total state population growth during the 1990s. These figures demonstrate that most new residents moved into large metropolitan areas. These areas possess diversified industrial bases and broad ranges of employment opportunity. Figure 1 reports population change by Florida MSAs from 1990-2000.

Labor force in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater MSA rose by 23.3%, in Orlando, by 33.0%, and in Jacksonville by 21.9%. LAUS figures for south Florida, however, indicate much lower ratios of labor force and employment growth to population growth. Labor force in Miami increased by 5.2% and in Ft. Lauderdale by 19.4%. Both percentages are well below the respective population growth rates. Percent Growth:1990-2000 MSALabor Force Employment Orlando33.0%37.8% Ft.

The top six counties, by population growth from 1990-2000 are part of the largest six MSAs in the state: CountyPopulation Growth 1990-2000 Ft.

While the largest MSAs experienced the most rapid growth in population, growth as a percent of 1990 population was largest in Naples. Ranked by growth rates, Naples grew by 65%, followed by Orlando, Ocala, Ft. Meyers-Cape Coral, and West Palm Beach. The following nine MSAs experienced population growth at or above the state average: Top MSAs: in Percent Population Growth, 1990-2000 MSAsPopulation Growth Rate Naples65.3% Orlando34.3% Ocala32.9% Ft.

Regional Population and Population Growth Figure 4 reports year 2000 population by county. Population is concentrated in southeast Florida and along the interstate 4 corridor that connects Tampa Bay in the west and the Space Coast in the east. Population concentrations extend along the east coast of Florida and northward up the west coast through Pasco County. Population density is also high in the far-western panhandle region, from Bay County west to Escambia County. Figure 5, which shows the change in population from 1990 through 2000 reports that the highest levels of population growth occurred in those areas with the highest population concentration in 1990. The east cost and the west coast from Tampa Bay south, and the far western panhandle area continue to attract new residents. By contrast, the seven interior counties of south Florida—Osceola, Okeechobee, Highlands, Hardee, DeSoto, Glades, and Hendry Counties—had between them only 401,702 residents in 2000, and had grown only 119,187 persons during the decade of the 1990s.


With the exceptions of Bay County (location of Panama City), Leon County (the state capitol and site of Florida State University), and Alachua County (site of the University of Florida), counties in FloridaÂ’s eastern panhandle continue to have lower population densities and to experience lower population growth than the remainder of the state. The 22 counties that lie between Jacksonville and Okaloosa County in the western Panhandle had only 510,722 residents in 2000, and grew by only 147,236 persons from 1990-2000. 1/ 1/ Baker, Bradford, Calhoun, Columbia, Dixie, Franklin, Gadsden, Gilchrist, Gulf, Hamilton, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Lafayette, Levy, Madison, Suwanee, Taylor, Union, Wakulla, Walton, and Washington Counties.
