November 18, 2013

Did you know that Pasco County is part of the 16th fastest-growing metro area in the United States of America?  According to a blog on the Tampa Bay Times website, the U.S. Conference of Mayors released its November 2013 U.S. Metro Economies Report ranking Tampa Bay 16th out of 363 metro areas with an expected growth of 2.8% for 2014.

"That's not only better than any other Florida metro, it counters an economic funk afflicting an increasing number of cities," wrote Jeff Harrington of the Tampa Bay Times.

According to the article Tampa Bay is the metro that has generated the most jobs within the State of Florida with an estimated 42,000 jobs added between September 2012 and 2013. Pasco County is also one of the fastest growing counties in Florida when it comes to population with a projected increase from 344,768 as reported by Census 2000 to 464,697 in 2010 - a population change of approximately 34.8%. By year 2015, the population of Pasco County is projected to increase to 479,078 and by year 2025 to 642,360.
