Default Florida question, more others then Floridians?

The share of Florida residents born outside the United States has almost quadrupled since 1900, up to 21 percent. Only 36 percent of Floridians were native to the state – down from 43 percent in 1950 – with the remaining 43 percent coming to Florida from other states.Jul 11, 2017

A full 43% of Florida residents are from another state.

I bet that they must stand alone or with a very small number of other states that this happens in. (Maybe California and NY share in this)

I think 36% native is high.

Unfortunately I believe it. My wife and I are the only Natives in my neighborhood. Its what happens when you keep taxes reasonable.

Its a good thing the States full. No more room for transplants.

Yes we are a minority and should be a protected status like native Hawaiians or Eskimos so we can be awarded lucrative sole source government contracts. We as a people have been discriminated against for years and we want our fair share.

I am a native Floridian. My kids were all born there too. In 2006 I moved to the Smoky Mountains of NC and I discovered native North Carolinians don't care much for Florida people. Upon further review I determined it's really people from up North they don't like.

I was called a half back once . I didn't understand the derogatory statement so I asked what that meant. The person assumed I was from New Jersey , moved to Florida and then moved to NC , thus only making it halfway back,i.e a half back. I clarified with them I was born and raised in Florida and I am southern like y'all.

I have plans to one day move back. There are parts of Florida I truly love and appreciate.

My mother was born there and doesn’t live there any more. I wasn’t born there but have a house that we may or may not move to at some point. I’m counting that as a 1:1 trade, maybe 1:2 if I decide to take my wife with me. Our neighborhood of probably 30-40 houses is completely empty other than maybe 5 others during the summer when we are there and then slowly fills back in through the fall. I prefer the summer population over the winter population and I’ll just deal with the heat.

This is a weird statistic considering the measure is "from 1900 till now." Florida in the early 1900s was practically deserted. It would be more interesting to see stats from Florida in 1960 or 1970 to now, although really considering most folks moved to FL in the 60s we're only just now seeing a second generation of kids growing up here, so not sure how that data comes into play - it may actually be boosting the numbers quite a lot.

I've lived in Florida along one coast or the other most of my life (not a FL native) and I'm still generally surprised when I meet adult native floridians.

The funny thing is, when I go to California I always assume the population is like Florida, which hasn't been my experience at all. Many of the (American) Californians I've met have generations of family that lived there and have a pretty strong sense of community and local history - which much of Florida lacks.

Just my $0.02. I don't think any of it is a bad thing, I think it's probably pretty similar to other tourist areas, except that Florida overall has a bigger ratio of tourist destinations to regular places than most states.

To be clear, anyone born in Florida is a native, right?

This is honestly common knowledge for anyone that lives in FL or that has ever visited FL.
Nobody wanted to live in the now most populated areas of FL, SE and SW, until air conditioning became popular, everyone retires here for the weather, other people like good weather too, it's just a hop from S. America.

I have had this conversation with NC locals too, last summer we were in an antique store off the beaten path and the lady asked where we were from. She made it pretty clear they didn't care much for FL people. I told her I didn't care much for those "Florida" people too but had to clarify those weren't natives like us but the yankees that move to FL and then claim it when they run roughshod when they travel about.

There is a great sense of community among long-time natives, we've all been here for several generations and networks/families are very interconnected. I have probably have 50 adult cousins in the area, among them the highest ranking law enforcement official, judges, lawyers, doctors, business owners, and so on. It's still a very small town in a lot of ways with the long time locals.

One of the great things about this country is that we are free to move from state to state, as often as we want. No restrictions.

Not according to many here who just want to refer to people like you and I as Yankees. Turns out most of them ain't from Fl. either.

I guarantee Delaware has a similar figure. In fact, the county I live in I am willing to be it is inverse with more people from other states than native.

Just looked it up. We are roughly only 40% native in Delaware.

Aren't you happy, think of all the business outsiders throw your way.

I'm an outsider. No amount of years lived here makes you a local to those born here.

That said, no. Many of the reasons I moved here a decade ago are now disappearing and turning into a place more like I tried to get away from. Actually going to be switching from realtor to appraiser soon. One there are too many of and no regulation on the amount active, the other there are.

Weren't the original Floridians the Seminole, Miccosukee, Timucua, etc.?

I'll bet they'd want y'all to go back where you came from.
