Florida’s population continues to rise faster than almost anywhere else, data released by the Census Bureau shows.
In just a single year ending in 2020, Florida’s resident population increased by 241,256, the agency said.
That mean’s that Florida saw an increase in population over the past year that was higher than any other state except Texas.
The data covers changes between July 2019 and July 2020. The figures were released on December 22.
Next year, those numbers could rise even faster as a result of the pandemic.
In the second half of the year, Miami’s real estate market rose to a new record high, with analysts saying that migration trends to Florida were accelerating as a result of covid-19.
