By 2030, 26 million people 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 2019 population included 21.5 million residents
  • Visitors to Florida in 2018 reached an all-time high of 126.1 million
  • Florida’s high school graduation rate is 86.1 percent.
