Poll: 1 in 5 Floridians Considering Moving

December 17th, 2007 by flanews

A new survey found that 20 percent of Floridians are seriously considering leaving the state.  The Second Annual Sunshine State Survey also found that 43 percent feel that their quality of their life is declining.  That number represents a 7 percent increase over last year.  A total of 1,200 Floridians were interviewed in the poll.  Leadership Florida says there’s no reason to panic yet.

“People are just in real quandary about what’s happening with their property values, what’s happening with property taxes,” said Leadership Florida’s Wendy Abberger.  “And it’s reasonable to expect them to be somewhat pessimistic about their quality of life.  You notice that the majority of them would still encourage other people to come down, move to Florida, from around the country.”

Leadership Florida, the Florida Philanthropic Network and the Jesse Ball duPont Fund commissioned the Sunshine State Survey.
