The Florida Scorecard
Florida is now the third most populous state and by 2030, 26 million Floridians will call Florida home and 1.5 million more jobs will be needed. 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:
- Third grade reading scores for each county
- Poverty rate for each county
- Percentage of Floridians age 25 and older in each county with at least an Associates Degree
- Florida’s chance of a recession
- Florida’s Industry Diversification ranking
- Florida’s high school graduation rate

Florida 2030: Blueprint for Success
To prepare for our state's continued growth and ensure Florida remains successful, the Florida Chamber Foundation has also released the blueprint for Florida’s future - Florida 2030. This two-year research program engaged business and community leaders in each of Florida’s 67 counties (including the Apopka area) and identified key trends and the factors that drive their regional economies. Florida 2030 is our opportunity to work together to strengthen your community, business and future. The future belongs to all Floridians and we need your help to plan for the future.
