Recommended Posts

Technology jobs and the rebound in tourism are fueling a reshuffling of America's population centers, that is according to the American Growth Project- from the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise at UNC. They found the economic center of gravity was moving and Orlando came in 10th on the list which was led by San Francisco. Before you deride anything associated with that city, here is the Fortune article associated with the study- https://fortune.com/2022/11/09/how-did-remote-work-change-san-francisco-fastest-growing-metro-areas-kenan-institute-silicon-valley/

Kenan Institute uses a MSA based methodology with up to date data to better study areas as opposed to just the cities.

Kenan Institute's summary on Orlando:

"Orlando, FL

Orlando may be most strongly associated with its theme parks, and tourism does constitute roughly one-third of the economy for Florida’s fastest-growing city. But its volume of visitors is also bolstered by the city’s role as the second-largest trade show destination in the U.S., and is fed by three international airports. Taken together, tourism generates enough revenue for the city to offset significant tax incentives for sectors such as aerospace. In addition, Orlando is known as one of the modeling and simulation capitals of the world, boasting a $6 billion sector in this growing field that features not only public sector and military employers, but also a growing number of private sector employers in healthcare, gaming and virtual reality."

Also interesting is they show Orlando metro population at 4.2 million, which is technically the CSA numbers.
