Among the statistics selected for this section are Employment, Income, Unemployment Rate, Population Characteristics, Taxes, Cost of Living, Education, Health Care, Public Safety, Air Quality and more.

Profiles of Florida goes beyond Census statistics, beyond metro area coverage, beyond the 100 best places to live.

A remarkable compilation that offers overviews and insights into each corner of the state.
