Demography Sources: STATSIndiana, U.S. Census Bureau – 2000 Decennial Census, 2010 Decennial Census, 2013 Estimates, Estimates of the Components of Resident Population Change section 02 The total population in Floyd County increased by 8 percent between 2000 and 2013. Natural increase (births minus deaths over that span of time) and domestic migration (the difference between the number of people moving into the county versus moving out) were both major contributors to that expansion. Natural increase showed a net growth of over 2,500 people, while domestic in-migration outpaced out-migration by more than 3,000 people. International migration had a net increase of almost 400, indicating that the county experienced an influx of new people from outside the U.S. Total population projections 2000 2010 2013 2020 *Estimation residuals are leading to a total change in population that differs from the sum of the components.

Approximately 51.8 percent of the population was female in 2000 (36,691) and that percent remained about the same in 2013.What did change is the distribution of people across the various age categories.A larger share of people shifted into the higher age groupings over the 2000 to 2013 time period. Demography Source: U.S. Census Bureau – 2000 Decennial Census and 2013 Annual Population Estimates section 02 In particular, people 50 and over swelled from 12.7% to 16.6% for males and from 15.6% to 19.1% for females between 2000 and 2013. Individuals of prime working age (20-49 years old) took a slight dip from 21.1% to 19.0% for males and from 22.3% to 19.5% for females.

Every race experienced a numerical increase, withWhites expanding the most. Of the non-White population, Black and Mixed Descent races gained the most people, while the number of Asians nearly doubled.This resulted in the expansion of the population of Other Races from 6 percent to 9 percent of the total population between 2000 and 2013.

The proportion of adults 25 years of age and older with a high school education or more improved from 82 percent in 2000 to 88 percent in 2013. Residents with less than a high school education fell by 6 percentage points, and those with some college education stayed the same between 2000 and 2013. The number of adults with a college degree or more increased from 26 percent in 2000 to 31 percent in 2013.This was due to a 2 percentage point increase in associate’s degrees and a 3 percentage point gain in those with at least a bachelor's degree.

  12. 12. 12 Takeaways The population of Floyd County is expected to grow over the next few years, and if past trends hold, that increase will be largely due to two key factors: natural increase (more births than deaths) and domestic migration (more people moving into than out of the county). While Floyd County’s population has been growing over the 2000 to 2013 period, it has also been aging. Despite positive growth in its population resulting from domestic migration, the population pyramids show that the proportion of the population in the 20 to 29, 30 to 39 and 40 to 49 age categories, as well as in the under 20 age grouping, has been declining. While the population remains largely white and non-Hispanic, racial and ethnic diversity has been slowly increasing in Floyd County.As such, finding ways to address the needs of and planning for a diversifying population will be important.The chances are quite strong that the diversity of the county is likely to continue. The educational attainment of adults 25 and over has improved since 2000, but the number of residents with only a high school education continues to be sizable (at 35 percent). Determining if this could be a barrier to economic growth is a topic worthy of examination. Floyd County may want to explore the mix of services and amenities that will be vital to an expanding population of people in the older age groupings. Exploring ways to retain and attract educated young adults will be important as well. Demography section 02

  26. 26. 26 Takeaways Growth in the number of establishments in Floyd County occurred in all business stages, with the exception of those employing 500 people or more (Stage 4 establishments).Yet, the most substantial numeric growth occurred among establishments with fewer than 10 employees (the Stage 0 and Stage 1 enterprises). These components of the local economy are often overlooked but deserve closer attention by local leaders. In light of the rapid growth of small-sized establishments (those under 10 employees) and people who are self-employed, policies and programs that help strengthen the survival of these businesses may make sense. Of course, focusing on high-growth Stage 2 firms may be worthy of consideration as well in light of the number of people they employ and the sizable sales they capture. Healthcare and Food industries are employment growth areas for Floyd County, while Construction, Utilities, and Manufacturing represent industries and occupations that have suffered job losses. The falling median income since 2000 could be attributed to a variety of factors. One could be the significant decline in jobs tied to industries (such as Manufacturing) that provided higher annual earnings wages on average than is the case for some industries that appear to be adding the greatest number of new jobs (such asAccommodation and Food Services or Administrative andWaste Management). Because real median income has decreased and poverty has jumped by 60 percent in Floyd County since 2000, services targeted to poverty-stricken individuals and households should be considered.This is especially an issue for the expanding number of children in poverty.

  34. 34. 34 Takeaways Floyd County’s unemployment rate experienced steady increases after 2002, peaking at 8.7 percent in 2010.The majority of the increase occurred during the period of the Great Recession (approximately 2008 to 2010).The good news is that the rate has been on a steady decline since 2010. Despite population increases, the size of the county’s labor force has remained the same since 2002.This may be the result of the fact that more people in the county are reaching retirement and, thus, opting to leave the workforce. Other possible factors include a rise in the number of workers unable to find work, or an uptick in the number of people who have given up looking for a job. Floyd County exports a sizable proportion of their labor force to surrounding counties, especially to the larger metropolitan area of Louisville/Jefferson County, Kentucky. Specifically, nearly 24,000 residents of Floyd County commute to jobs located elsewhere. It may be worthwhile for Floyd County leaders to assess the human capital attributes of workers who commute to jobs outside the county. If it is losing highly skilled and well-educated workers to Louisville or other places outside Floyd County, finding ways to reduce the leakage of these talented workers may be a strategy worth pursuing. Another strategy may be to join forces with surrounding counties to work in a cohesive way on a regional blueprint. In light of the laborshed and commuteshed data highlighted in this report, there may be value in pursuing economic and workforce development efforts on a regional (multi- county) basis.
