The graph which is logarithmic indicates that Florida's growth was much faster than the United States from the years 2000 to 2012 although in the more recent years the growth rate for Florida's population has slowed considerably due to high unemployment and weak job market for more recent years (Ostrowski, 2011). Florida's population growth for 2013 is at 1 percent (Ostrowski, 2013).
