Flagler County is fastest growing once again

16 03 2006

Flagler County, located along the Atlantic Coast between Daytona Beach and Jacksonville, was the fastest-growing county in the nation for the second year in a row with a 10.7 percent population increase from July 1, 2004, to July 1, 2005, according to estimates released today by the U.S. Census Bureau. Flagler, with 76,410 residents, also led the nation with a 53 percent population increase since Census 2000. Florida has 14 of the 100 fastest-growing counties from 2004 to 2005, according to the estimates, even though four hurricanes struck the state in 2004. Along with Flagler, those counties are: Osceola, Lake, St. Johns, St. Lucie, Pasco, Walton, Lee, Wakulla, Collier, Santa Rosa, Clay, Hernando and Sumter.
