Population Growth

This graph represents the dramatic population growth in the Highland County through the recent years.

Migration Reasons

The area is a major migration destination, for the following reasons:
-The IAN hurricane damaged 1M houses in the west coast, so people are looking to move into an area with no hurricanes.
-Lake Placid is in land.
-The cost of living in Miami is causing people to migrate out to cheaper close cities.
-Lake Placid is only 2 hours away from Miami and 1.5 hours from Sarasota, so it's a great migration destination.
