Top Florida Cities by Growth: An Analysis of Diversity, Crime, Ownership, and More

Examining the Top Three Cities and their Performance Across Eight Key Categories

After analyzing 44 Florida cities with a population over 65,000, Doral, Homestead, and Kissimmee emerged as the top cities, ranking in the top five across four out of eight growth categories. The City of Miami also performed well, ranking in three categories. 

Overall, 24 Florida cities ranked in at least one category, which evaluated growth in population, population density, median income, median rent, employment and ownership percentage, crime reduction, and race diversity between 2010 and 2021.

It's worth noting that these rankings are based on the largest change over time, rather than which cities have the highest current numbers. In the coming days, I’ll be doing this exercise across other states and see which cities have the best growth metrics.
