By 2030, six million more residents will call Florida home. To prepare for this continued growth and ensure Florida remains successful, we need a plan for Florida’s future that develops high-wage jobs, diversifies the economy, ensures global competitiveness and creates vibrant communities. The Florida Scorecard™ provides Florida leaders and local stakeholders with the metrics needed to measure progress within their own communities. The Scorecard will help identify data points that are important to Florida’s economy, including:
Florida’s 2016 population included 20.6 million residents
Visitors to Florida in 2015 reached an all-time high of 106 million
Florida’s high school graduation rate for the 2015-2016 school year was 80.7 percent.
