Florida and US Population



According to U.S. Census Projections, as of July 1, 2014 Florida’s population is ranked third in the United States, following California and Texas. The population continues to grow at a rate that exceeds the projected national average.


This section provides five population sub indicators;


a) Population Clock
b) Total Estimate
c) Percent Change

Florida’s quality of life continues to draw new residents and tourists. This growth can be both beneficial and detrimental to the economy, the environment, and the transportation system. Therefore, efforts will have to be made to meet the needs of a growing population.
