Hello everyone

I am looking to relocate to the sanford/lake mary area. I've been looking up online for jobs, I've noticed that there isn't alot but there are some. How would you say the economy is doing there? Worse? Better? No change? What is the likelihood of landing a job with a liveable wage?

Also what are the areas like? and are they safe places to live?

Thanks

There are basically no jobs available if one factors in the quantity of individuals fighting for the few jobs available. Central Florida has one of the worst overall economies in the country right now. Otherwise Lake Mary/Sanford for the most part is a nice place to live if you can support yourself.

Orlando was named as the worst city in the US for young adults, the article says that the unemployment rate for 20-24 year old job seekers is 23.8%. There are almost a million unemployed in FL total, and more unemployed people are moving here every day. How much does that affect the official rate?

The Daily Beast compiled information as follows:

"America’s young adults are staring down record unemployment and diminished career prospects. The Daily Beast crunched the numbers to find the cities where unemployment and debt are the highest.

Census data released in September revealed the statistical proof behind what millions had already known—the recession caused severe, and possibly irreversible, damage to the future of America’s newest adult population. Dubbed the “lost generation,” young adults are facing record unemployment and debt, which has caused more of them to stay close to home and remain single. Their earnings and career prospects may be stunted for decades.

The details are stark. Nearly 6 million adults between 25 and 34 were living with their parents last year, a 25 percent uptick since before the recession started. The number of long-distance moves dropped to the lowest levels since World War II. The marriage rate among 25- to 34-year-olds fell to a new low of 44.2 percent.

To figure out where young adults have had it the worst, The Daily Beast combed the stats on unemployment, marriage, and education to see which cities had the greatest positive change between 2008 and 2010, according to the U.S. Census. The cities on our list of the worst for young people have had the greatest rise in an educated, unemployed, and single young adult population. Average consumer debt, not available broken down by age, was considered based on data from Experian by metro area. Each metric was weighted equally, along with the current level of unemployment for the population between 20 and 24 years old."

Detroit hasn't had a population gain for starters as the economy there derailed well before it did elsewhere. Orlando has attracted young adults and gained in population probably due to the fact families who moved here years ago have children now in their 20s who stayed put. Another confounding stat is that the educated young adults are moving out (brain-drain) and being replaced by high school graduates moving in who lack in jobs skills, which of course further adds to the high unemployment rate in that age group. Orlando has probably picked up a reputation as a place to move where it's somewhat affordable and where one can conceivably find a service-economy job that allows one to get by.
