Pensacola-Ferry Pass-Brent will grow faster than the nation through 2017, but it will lag the Florida’s robust pace of growth through the medium term. Healthcare, leisure/hospitality and construction will drive job gains and offset declines in government. Longer term, an upbeat demographic outlook suggests Pensacola will outperform the U.S.
Healthcare employs more than 27,000 local residents. Generates over $1.3 billion in salaries and $2.5 billion in sales annually.
