ABSTRACT


This report is one of a series for selected counties in Florida
designated to compile secondary data from several sources into one
document. The purpose is twofold: first, to present useful information
in a readily usable form; and second, to provide a list of sources for
obtaining more detailed data on related topics. Subjects covered include
general social and economic characteristics of the population, housing,
the economy and labor force characteristics, and data related to the
public sector.

Key words: Florida counties, economic development, rural development,
data, information.













This publication is one of several similar reports in which data
relating to rural development in various counties in Florida are pre-
sented. It is a contribution from the Center for Rural Development in
The Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the University of
Florida.
Appreciation is expressed to Marianne Nott for organizing the
tables and typing this manuscript.
