From the Director…

From the Director . . .

It is with great pleasure that I announce the publication of the Southwest Florida Economic Almanac 2017. The Almanac is a product of discussions among representatives of the Regional Economic Research Institute and Southwest Florida business and community leaders in Fall 2015 focusing on the need for a resource presenting socioeconomic and demographic data for our region. While the RERI maintained databases with much of this information, it had not yet found a way to make it available to the public in a format as readable and useful as its popular monthly publication, Regional Economic Indicators. So the idea of creating an almanac for our region came about and developed into the document you are reading now. Such a resource has simply never existed before and was created with the mission statement of FGCU’s Lutgert College of Business in mind:

Dr. Chris Westley

“The Lutgert College of Business educates and prepares students to address local and global business challenges. Our faculty are dedicated to student learning, scholarship, and service that enhance our academic and business communities. We build relationships that foster entrepreneurship and economic growth in the Southwest Florida region and beyond.” Student researchers working with the RERI met with faculty to devise a list of topics that would prove useful for such a resource and work soon commenced collecting data, devising templates, creating charts, and writing text for a document that would eventually exceed 350 pages. Topics covered included agriculture, charitable giving, demographics, employment, finance, education, the environment, government spending, health, housing, income and poverty statistics, real estate, and much more. In the process, our students learned valuable research skills, honed communication and computer skills, and interacted with myriad entrepreneurs, bureaucrats, economic development councils, and librarians to compile the data contained herein. In the process, they learned about a vibrant local economy and created a product that we hope will help lay the foundation for economic growth in the years to come. The RERI finances its day-to-day operations, including paying its students, through contracting for research projects and studies. Therefore, we are grateful for the sponsorship of the Southwest Florida Economic Development Alliance for the inaugural volume of the Almanac. With plans to both fine-tune and expand the Almanac moving forward, we are soliciting sponsorships for the 2018 edition. Eventually, the RERI would like to create an online portal enabling researchers, writers, economic development officials, the media, teachers, students, and others, to access its data on an interactive web site and in downloadable formats. Please contact the RERI for information about how to sponsor the 2018 edition or to have your firm or organization added to future downloadable versions of the present one.

The RERI is currently soliciting sponsorships for the next edition of the Southwest Florida Economic Almanac. Contact RERI@fgcu.edu for more information.

The Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, provides employment data by industry for each of the five counties. Information regarding employment data by industry for each of the five counties can be found below. Please note that data is collected from establishments that report to the unemployment insurance programs of the United States. One major exclusion from unemployment insurance coverage includes most agricultural workers on small farms. As a result, the agriculture data reported may be underrepresented. Southwest Florida had 372,219 employees in 2015. This was a 20.6 percent increase from 2011. Retail trade was the largest industry in Southwest Florida (70,611 employees, 17.9 percent increase from 2011), followed by accommodation and food services (57,714 employees, 26 percent increase from 2011), health care and social assistance (51,478 employees, 11.6 percent increase from 2011), construction (39,311 employees, 45.2 percent increase from 2011) and administrative and waste services (26,459 employees, 25.2 percent increase from 2011).
