The Population Atlas provides an analysis of population trends for more than 45 years. Maps, graphs, and charts depict population growth since 1970 by age, race, ethnicity, and sex. All files are available in .pdf format for convenient printing.

Data by race are shown for white, black and other races. Other races include Asian, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and Two or More Races. Data by ethnicity are shown for Hispanic and non-Hispanic starting in 2004.

Data shown in this Atlas originated from the Florida Legislature, Office of Economic and Demographic Research. All data are population estimates as of July 1st for each year.

Life expectancy is a measure used to gauge the overall health of a population. It is the average number of years of life at birth that an individual could expect to live if current death rates were to remain constant and no one moved in or out of the population. Shifts in life expectancy are used to describe trends in mortality. Life expectancy at birth is strongly influenced by infant and child mortality, improvements in nutrition, housing, hygiene, medical care, prevention, treatment and control of diseases throughout the lifespan. These factors contribute to decreases in death rates and increases in average life expectancy. Migration into and out of a population may also influence life expectancy statistics by increasing or decreasing death rates in specific age groups.
