Overall, Florida’s population grew, but Broward and Miami-Dade counties got a little roomier with the first post-pandemic population estimates showing more moving vans in those counties left, according to U.S. Census estimates released Thursday.
The latest looked at numbers from July 1, 2020, to July 1, 2021, and it shows that if it weren’t for people moving here, Florida’s population would have dropped. The state led the country in the larger number of deaths, compared to births.
Miami-Dade County’s population dropped 1.4% and Broward County lost .7% of its population. Palm Beach County had a net gain of .4%.
