Brevard County has experienced substantial population growth over the past five decades, which has exceeded the rate of growth for the State of Florida as a whole, a State that is often characterized by rapid growth. That same growth has also brought about a continued shift in the age demographic of the County, resulting in a shift from an overall younger to older population.
While Brevard truly came into recognition as a ‘space technology’ region early on, the employment character of the County has shifted over the years to more of a service-based economy, much like the rest of Florida. And work commuting characteristics reveal that Brevard is seeing a noticeable rise in its ‘work from home’ population as well as those choosing to commute to work by bicycle.
