GROWTH TREND OF THE TOTAL STATE POPULATION


During the past fifty years the resident population of the

state has followed the growth curve which roughly averages 3.24

per cent per annum compounded. As our Chart 1 reveals, the rate

: of growth has been fairly constant.

Major deviations from the trend line occurred between 1910

* and 1915 when the state's population took an upward spurts during

Sthe First World War when the curve of population growth temporar-

ily slowed down, and again during the 1920-1925 boom when the

state went through a phase of rapid growth. Since the end of

the Florida boom the trend has closely followed the trend line

V with only negligible deviations. Between 1940 and 1945 the

* rate of growth was slightly increased but the 1945 State Census

i showed the population count exactly on the trend line.

In order to estimate the present population of the state

we have followed two procedures. We have first fixed the point
Sat which the population would have arrived on April 1, 1949,

if it had followed the rate of growth of the past fifty years,

which is .266 per cent monthly. This would place the population

at 2,561,500 (see Table 1), We have then compared these figures



The United States Census of Population enumerates people
at their usual place of residence. No attempt has been made to
include the floating population in the following paper.

with the estimates of the Census Bureau. This estimate places

the population at 2,356,000 for July 1, 1948.2 Applying the

past increase of .266 per cent monthly compound to this figure,

an estimate of 2,406,570 would be obtained for April 1, 1949.

This would be roughly 155,000 below the point on the fifty-

year trend line.

Another check is provided by the ratio of the State of

Florida in United States figures for births, deaths, school en-

rollment and motor car registration. These average 1.74 per

cent. Since the 1940 ratio of the indicators to population

revealed a 4 per cent error, we assume a ratio of 1,68 and

obtain a population of 2,451,740 for mid-year 1948. With the

addition of the monthly increment of .266 per cent we obtain

a figure of 2,510,570 for April 1, 1949. The trend line pro-

jection is therefore only slightly above the figure which

would be obtained by assuming the adjusted ratio of deaths,

births, car registration and school enrollment.3

'United States Bureau of the Census, Current Population Re-
ports, Population Estimates, Series P-25, No. 15, October 10,
1948, The U. S. population is estimated at 146,114,000 for
July 1, 1948. The Census estimates are based on school enroll-
ment which is not too reliable a basis for a state like Florida
which has a large inward migration of older people.
The 1940 Census population of the State of Florida com-
prised 1.438 per cent of the total United States population.
Births in Florida were 1.43 per cent; deaths, 1.62 per cent;
school enrollment, 1.45 per cent; and passenger car registra-
tion, 1.497 per cent.

The comparative figures for 1948 were 1.686 per cent
for births, 1.690 per cent for deaths, 1.786 per cent for

GROWTH TREND OF THE NORTHERN, CENTRAL

AND SOUTHERN PARTS OF THE STATE

The growth of various parts of Florida has not been

uniform. The population has increased at the fastest rate

in southern Florida as plotted on Chart 2. The population

of the eighteen counties forming South Florida rose from

7.1 per cent of the total population in 1895 to 21.56 per

cent in 1925 at the height of the boom, and can now be es-

timated at 31.9 per cent. The average rate of growth of

this section of the state is 6.6 per cent compound annually,

considerably in excess of the state trend line.

During the period of the Florida land boom in the twen-

ties, the population movement was considerably ahead of the

trend line, but between 1925 and 1935 the area's population

ourvo straightened out. Between 1935 and 1940 another

period of strong inward migration it moved with the trend

but it experienced a major setback during the war years.

Since 1945 the trend has been steeply upward again. An

average of the ratio of births, deaths, school enrollment,

car registration and gasoline sales of 1948 in the state

total suggests that the eighteen southern counties hold a



school enrollment, and 1.807 per cent for car registration.

The deviation of the average ratio of the four indicators
from the actual population as fixed by the U. S. Census of
1940 was 4.17 per cent.

share of about 31.9 per cent in the state total which would

account for a population of 816,600 in 1949.

The development of the central part of the state formed

by fifteen counties has been more conservative than that of

the south but has shown also an increase in ratio for these

counties at the expense of the northern counties.

However, Central Florida increased its share in the

state total only slightly during the last fifty years. It

is interesting to note that the maximum gain was obtained

during the Florida boom of the 201s when the area increased

its share to 35.96 per cent, a gain of 9 per cent since 1895.

From there on the area lost proportionate strength until a

low point of 33.8 per cent was reached in 1940. The area

has maintained a share of about 34 per cent since that time

(see Chart 3).

The northern part of the state, which fifty years ago

contained almost two-thirds of the populace, decreased its

share to slightly over one-third of the state. Its propor-

tionate loss came gradually but was strongest from the middle

of the 20,s when the central and southern parts of the state

made their major gains. Still the northern counties have

more than doubled the population they had fifty years ago

(see Chart 4).

GROWTH TRENDS OF AREAS


The growth of various centers of population is outlined

in Table 8. As can be seen from this tabulation, the south-

eastern area of Florida had the fastest population growth

since 1940. This area stretches along the Atlantic Ocean

from the southern tip of the Florida Keys to Stewart in

Martin County. It is favored by specific climatic condi-

tions due to the Gulf Streamts passing close to the coast

line. The area has been favored with a particularly mild

winter climate, and has become the Mecca of the Florida

tourist traffic. During the war the population movement of

this area was stimulated by large military installations

which used resort hotels for housing military personnel.

After the war a large population influx occurred and a

strong building activity provided additional accommodations

both for permanent and for the floating population.

The Tampa-St. Petersburg Area was likewise the center

of strong military activity during the war. Many manufac-

turing plants were busy with war work especially in Tampa

and war workers floated into the area from the surrounding

districts. In St. Petersburg resort accommodations were

used for military establishments.

After the war some of these temporary gains were lost

but population increases occurred in the tourist centers of









- 10 -


St. Petersburg, Bradenton and Sarasota. The increase, how-

evers of the whole area is not as strong as along the south-

east coast and only slightly better than the state average.

The Central Lake District around Orlando, Winter Park,

Wintorhaven, Lakeland, Ocala, and Leesburg went Into an un-

usual period of development shortly before and after the war.

This area has developed as one of the favored centers of

winter tourists, both transients and long-term, and has

also benefited by the prosperity in citrus growing. After

the war its population increased by 41.67 per cent over 1940

which is better than the state average.

The Jacksonville Area, on the other hand, which occupies

the northern part of the northeast coast of Florida and also

contains the cities of St. Augustine and Daytona Beach, is

the most diversified of Floridals population centers from an

economic point of view. Manufacturing, trade and shipping

are concentrated in Jacksonville. Winter resort trade is

important in Volusia County and a prosperous summer resort

trade is carried in the coastal towns. The area reached a

peak of population during the war years when war manufacturing,

ship building, and Army camps were concentrated in the area.

Since then the area has not been able to maintain its popula-

tion gains on a proportionate scale and its increase over

1940 of 29.41 per cent is considerably less than the state

average.









- 11 -


Similarly the Pensacola Gulf Area around Pensacola,

Panama City and other Gulf Coast points was unable to main-

tain its war gains caused by Navy training activity and

ship building. The area realized a total gain of nearly

30 per cent over 1940 but is still below average. Since

the war a certain amount of summer resort activity has do-

veloped in this part of the state. The area also has pro-

fited from the farm prosperity in the postwar years. De-

spite these favorable factors the area has not quite kept up

with the rapid postwar development of the state.

METROPOLITAN CENTERS GROW

At the time of the last Federal Census of 1940 the

State of Florida had only three counties with a population

of over 100,000: Dade County with Miami, Duval County with

Jacksonville, and Hillsborough County with Tampa. During

the war five more metropolitan counties reached the 100,000

mark: Pinellas County with St. Petersburg, Polk County with

Lakoland, Palm Beach County with Palm Beach and West Palm

Beach, and Escambia County with Pensacola. The postwar de-

velopment indicates that Orange County with Orlando has also

reached the 100,000 makr, but that Escambia has lost popula-

tion and is not quite within the 100,000 range. (See Chart

6)

The most spectacular gains have been made in Dade

County which has experienced an increase of 60.9 per cent

over 1940. Other sizable gains have been made in Orange

County with 54.7 per cent, Pinellas with 54.5 per cent,

Polk County with 38.5 per cent, Palm Beach County with 33.9

per cent, Escambia with 30 per cent, Duval with 28.9 per

cent, and Hillsborough with 27.9 per cent.

Of the smaller counties both Broward and Volusia ap-

proached the 100,000 mark. The population of Broward County

developed since 1940 represents Broward as the fastest growing

county in the state.

It is interesting to note that.the urban areas have

continued to absorb a major part of the population. In

1930 the metropolitan areas outlined in our tabulation

had a share of only 55 per cent of the state's population.

In 1940 this percentage had grown to 61 per cent and in

1949 it had increased to around 65 per cent. It is further

significant that the major growth has occurred in counties

where tourist activity and citrus growing are the major

breadwinners, while the growth has been slower in the rural

districts and in manufacturing cities.
