Maurice H. Yeates Queens University This paper presents an attempt at analysing economic data that are spatially distributed, and aims at discerning some of the underlying geographic forces prevailing in a defined area. The area chosen for study is the State of Florida, famous for the rapidity of its population growth during the past few decades. Between 1950 and 1960 the population of Florida increased by 79 per cent to 4,951,560, compared to the overall increase in the United States of 18.5 per cent. Currently the population of Florida is about 5.5 million, making it the ninth most populous state in the nation. Economic growth has not, however, been as spectacular. Although Fuchs ( 1 ) presents data indicating that Florida has the second largest increase in value added from manufacturing in the United States between 1947-54, to note that between 1899 and 1947 the number of employees in manufacturing in Florida little more than doubled, whereas the economy and total employment in the United States grew phenomenally during the same this increase was from a very small base. As evidence of this it is salutory period. (2) Therefore, any statement of percentage increase presents an inflated impression.
