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

presented. It is a contribution from the Center for Rural Development

in the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the University

of Florida.
