With almost 1.5 million residents, the six-county Jacksonville/Northeast Florida region offers great opportunities and a superior quality of life. Our region continues to experience positive growth as more people discover its perfect balance between business opportunities and lifestyle
Our diverse industry base and affordable quality of life make Northeast Florida one of the most requested duty stations for the U.S. Navy. Transitioning veterans and their families make up part of our motivated and skilled workforce, and they are part of the reason companies choose to locate or expand in our region. Every year, over 3,000 highly trained, mission-oriented personnel exit or retire from military service, and 80 percent of those choose to stay in Jacksonville and Northeast Florida. Area employers and economic development groups applaud these prospective employees who are hard-working and disciplined, and trained in electronics, technical maintenance, repair and management.
Sixteen of every hundred Jacksonville, Florida-area residents are connected with the Navy, either through active or reserve duty, or as a retiree, civilian employee or member of a military family. This translates into an annual economic impact of $6.1 billion for the local economy. The area's four Navy bases employ more than 56,000 and have a combined annual payroll of $1.59 billion.
In addition, Aviation, Logistics, Finance Healthcare and Manufacturing are all on our list of important industries in Northeast Florida.
