Florida is a beautiful place to live. It’s safe to say A LOT of people feel that way now, especially after the last two years.
Florida is growing more and more every day, and while it may be good for the economy, the traffic, home prices and wait times may be stressful for those who have been here for their entire lives, or several years.
According to Stacker, from 2019 to 2020, the U.S. population grew by .35%. That’s actually its slowest rate since 1900. Experts attribute many different things to the change, including people having fewer children, more deaths as the Baby Boomer population ages and immigration crackdown. For the counties whose populations are growing, it’s often due to job opportunities, high quality of life, easy commutability to job centers and low rents, according to Stacker.
Stacker put together a list of the fastest-growing counties in Florida with data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The time period is from 2010 to 2020. Read on to see if your county is on the list via Stacker.
The data coming out for 2021 should be interesting. Lee County will probably be number one after the growth over the last year.
