Florida Drivers Safer Than Drivers in Most States

Over 37,000 Americans died in motor vehicle crashes in 2016, a 5.6% increase over the previous year — when deaths rose by 8.4%. The last time deaths caused by traffic accidents increased as much was in 1986. According to several official sources, the increase in fatalities can be attributable, at least in part, to more […]

Miami is America’s 9th Worst City to Drive

Having a car inspires feelings of freedom and conjures images of the open road. But the reality of being an auto owner can be an entirely different experience. High gas prices, long commutes, and sometimes deadly accidents are daily concerns for drivers. The drawbacks to car ownership and driving are far more pronounced in some […]

In Florida, More Than 1 in 3 Millenials Live With Their Parents

The hopes and dreams of young adults in the United States usually involve financial success — and total independence from one’s parents. Achieving these dreams is by no means guaranteed. Young adults in the United States usually rely on varying levels of family support to get by. This ranges from help with the phone bill […]

Florida Less Evangelical Than Most States

Evangelicals are America’s most powerful religious affiliation. As a group, white evangelicals form one-fifth of all registered voters in the United States and make up one-third of all voters who identify or lean Republican. With such a prominent group influencing U.S. politics and democracy, 24/7 Wall St. found the share of each state’s population who […]

Why Miami Beach is the Worst City to Live in Florida

Americans take into consideration a number of factors when deciding where to live, including the quality of schools, the strength of the local economy and job market, the area’s safety and culture, as well as its climate. Cities that perform well by these measures are more likely to attract new residents, and those that do […]

Typical Adult in Florida Spends $330 a Year on Lottery Tickets

Lotteries are hugely popular in the United States. In 2015, American adults spent $66.8 billion on lottery tickets, amounting to about $270 per adult. It’s not clear what drives such interest on a national scale — whether it’s because of innate optimism or economic desperation. What is clear is that the odds are against the […]

Black and White Inequality in Florida Worse Than Most States

In the wake of Charlottesville, racial issues dominate the news. As much of the country rallies against racism, data suggests that the United States is a long way from full social or material equality. While racism may no longer be entrenched in laws, the result of years of discrimination is clear in today’s racial divide […]

Shriners Hospitals for Children is the Largest Charity in Florida

Charitable giving by individuals rose to nearly $400 billion in 2016, a record high according to philanthropy research organization Giving USA. Such donations help more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations that operate in the United States. These groups, which are organized for purposes other than generating profit, are often formed with a public benefit or […]

Tallahassee is the City in Florida Where Your Car is Most Likely to Be Stolen

Motor vehicle theft in the United States increased significantly in 2016, the first substantial increase in 15 years. Still, last year’s uptick is minuscule when compared to the overall downward trend in car thefts of the past quarter century. In fact, despite an increase of roughly 70 million registered vehicles nationwide since 1991, the 750,000 […]

Florida Among the States Where People Are Having the Fewest Babies

Ever wonder which states are contributing the most to our ever-expanding population? Or the ones that are contributing the least? Of course, generally, a state’s population size matters most — the larger the size of the populace the more the state is likely to contribute to U.S. population growth. But a state’s fertility rate and […]
