Economic & Demographic Profiles and Reports

Miami-Dade County Economic and Demographic Profiles

The Economic and Demographic Profile brings many key economic and demographic statistics from a variety of sources into one central place.

The publication includes maps and covers gross regional product, employment, wages and income, international trade and socioeconomic indicators including population, race, ethnicity, age and educational attainment.

Income and Poverty in Miami-Dade County

This report, Income & Poverty in Miami-Dade County: 2013, is the first in a series of three reports that explore poverty in Miami-Dade County and, to the extent possible, the change over time and across the landscape of the County since 1990.

The reports draw upon data from the 1990 and 2000 Census, and the most recent data available, the 2013 American Community Survey 1-year and 5-year estimates. The following report is a look at the most current measures of poverty for households and individuals in the County and places them in context with neighboring counties, Florida and the nation.

Later in 2015, the second report, Patterns of Poverty and Inequality in Miami-Dade: 1990-2013, will explore in more detail the geographic distribution of poverty across the County and the degree to which this distribution as well as the characteristics of the poor have changed since 1990.

The third report, People Living in Poverty in Miami-Dade: 1990-2013, will investigate the population living in areas of the County where there was concentrated poverty reported in the Census of 1990 and 2000 and the 2013 ACS 5-year estimates. It will explore the extent to which key characteristics of the population living in such areas have or have not changed over time.

Socioeconomic Profile of Targeted Urban Areas

By the mid-1990s, Miami-Dade’s elected officials were well aware of the sharp and increasing social and economic disparities between the county’s various neighborhoods. The County identified neighborhoods and commercial corridors as Targeted Urban Areas (TUAs) in 1997.

The TUAs would serve as economic development priority areas and the focus of public efforts largely directed by community input.

This profile utilizes US Census data from the American Community Survey 5-year Estimates to take an updated and detailed look at conditions for current residents of these areas.

2010 American Community Survey: Miami-Dade County

The U.S. Census Bureau's release of the American Community Survey, 2010 presents a clear picture of the socio-economic, demographic and housing impacts from the recession. The data shows that median household and median family income in Miami-Dade County have declined significantly from peak levels in 2008.

Employment also declined sharply, especially among construction, production, and transportation workers since 2007. Poverty rates have risen, and even social  characteristics of the population have been affected. General demographic trends have continued along historical paths observed since the 1960's and 1970s.
