Southwest Florida Economic Almanac

Southwest Florida Economic Almanac Series

Report Information

The Southwest Florida Economic Almanac Series was conceived following discussions among representatives of the RERI and Southwest Florida business and community leaders in Fall 2015 focusing on the need for a resource presenting socioeconomic and demographic data for our region.  While the RERI maintained databases with much of this information, it had not yet found a way to make it available to the public in a format as readable and useful as its popular monthly publication, Regional Economic Indicators.

Topics covered by the Southwest Florida Economic Almanac Series include:

  • Agriculture
  • Community and environment
  • Demographics
  • Education
  • Employment and economic indicators
  • Health and wellness
  • Households and families
  • Housing characteristics
  • Transportation
