Polk County Population Growth Demands More Jobs

A new report by RealtyTrac, which studies population and rental income data, revealed that Polk County has been named the nation’s fifth-best market in the country for renting homes to baby boomers with almost 25 percent of Polk’s population being comprised of boomers in 2013. Since many boomers are experiencing major life changes that often involve drastic moves, it is exciting news for local businesses that Polk County is having such major growth.

The Ledger’s “Polk Business Barometer” for the months of March and April of 2014 reported that most economic indicators posted gains, new home building and home sales are active, retail sales are up about 6 percent from last year, and tourism revenue jumped more than 16 percent in April. Hiring has been strongest in the retail, manufacturing, leisure and hospitality industries.
