Tampa is a city in the U.S. state of Florida. It serves as the county seat for Hillsborough County and is located on the west coast of Florida, on Tampa Bay near the Gulf of Mexico. The population of Tampa in 2011 was 346,037. For U.S. Census purposes, Tampa is part of the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area. The four-county area is composed of roughly 2.9 million residents, making it the third largest metropolitan statistical area in the state, and the fifth largest in the Southeastern United States, behind Miami, Washington, D.C., Orlando and Atlanta.
“The rate of increase in Florida’s foreign-born population is twice that of the state’s very high overall rate of increase, demonstrating that immigration is leading that increase, second only to domestic migration from other states.” -Center for Immigration Studies
The Greater Tampa Bay area has just over 4 million residents and generally includes the Tampa and Sarasota metro areas. The Tampa Bay Partnership and U.S. Census data showed an average annual growth of 2.47 percent, or a gain of approximately 97,000 residents per year. Between 2000 and 2006, the Greater Tampa Bay Market experienced a combined growth rate of 14.8 percent, growing from 3.4 million to 3.9 million and hitting the 4 million people mark on April 1, 2007. A 2012 estimate shows the Tampa Bay area population to have 4,310,524 people and a 2017 projection of 4,536,854 people. Much of this growth rate is due to an increasing immigrant population in the area.
Tampa Bay led the state in new hires last month as Florida’s job market brightened, with the state’s unemployment rate dipping to its lowest point in four years. About 10,000 jobs were added locally last month, sinking Tampa Bay’s jobless rate from 8 percent to 7.4 percent in one month, state data released Friday show. With 33,000 jobs added since February 2012, Tampa Bay’s year-over-year job growth bested every metro area in the state. As a result, many immigrants will have the opportunity of reaching Florida via Work Visas.
