Tampa gaining new residents

Tampa’s population has been steadily on the rise since 2010.  The growth of residents includes not only retirees moving to Tampa for the warm weather and low cost of living, but also many millennials who are drawn to its abundant job market. A study by Realtor.com ranked Tampa as number three in the top destinations for millennials.

The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater state metro area added 42,800 new private-sector jobs in March of 2016, compared to the previous year. There is an especially high demand for workers in the STEM fields, with 14,950 openings in the region as of March.
