What Do the Job Numbers Say?

In the most recent Florida Chamber Foundation’s By The Numbers, the Florida Chamber Foundation takes a closer look at Florida’s current job growth rates, our highest performing job categories, economic prosperity and more.

Hurricane Irma had a large but temporary impact on Florida’s job numbers and our state is back on our estimated trajectory of job creation. Last month, Florida gained 125,300 jobs, with 197,500 jobs created year-over-year and our unemployment rate is down to 3.6 percent.
