Florida Vocational and Technical Schools

The U.S. Census Bureau estimated Florida's population in 2013 at 19.5 million, up 4 percent since the last census was taken in 2010. That ranks it as the fourth largest state in the nation, behind only California, Texas and New York. In a state that is typically associated with retired adults, about 38 percent of the population -- nearly 7.5 million people -- were employed as of May 2013.

With healthy median annual incomes, a growing population and low unemployment, four Florida metro areas -- Orlando-Kissemmee-Sanford; Cape Coral-Ft. Myers; Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville; and North Port-Bradenton-Sarasota all made Forbes magazine's 2014 list of America's 20 Fastest-Growing Cities.
