CityStats Data Analysis

Statewide Data 

Regional Data

The 2016 CityStats survey had a response rate of 73% (298 of Florida's 411 municipalities) equaling 76% of the total statewide municipal population. Analysis reports are based on these responses as well as those of previous years (2015 – 308 responses equaling 75% of cities and 76% of the statewide municipal population; 2014 - 293 responses equaling 71% of cities and 68% of the statewide municipal population; 2013 - 370 responses equaling 90% of cities and 87% of the statewide municipal population; 2012 - 337 responses equaling 82% of cities and 70.5% of the statewide municipal population; 2011 - 317 responses equaling 77% of cities).

The CityStats surveys are filled out by members of each individual municipality. Questions not answered by the member will display blank values. The answers are that of the individual cities and the Florida League of Cities does not verify this information with any other sources. The property tax data is provided by the Florida Department of Revenue's County and Municipal Property Tax Data Tables.

MiniSurvey Series Results

The Center's MiniSurvey Series is intended to gather pertinent, targeted data on a narrow topic through a brief 5-10 question format. MiniSurveys are sent electronically to all 412 Florida cities with varying response rates that are noted in each conclusion report. Surveys are completed by members of each individual municipality and the FLC does not verify or cross-reference responses with other sources.
