The first annual report on the status of women and girls in Miami-Dade County was presented to the Board of County Commissioners Tuesday, December 6, 2016. The findings shed a light on areas where women and girls are succeeding or struggling, including in education, health and safety and economic development.
The study presents a comprehensive analysis of the Miami-Dade economy and offers an innovative 5-point program to address the County’s most difficult community development challenges.
Economic development and housing are two of our most important foci and this report provides readers with analysis of South Florida’s economy with particular attention to employment, purchasing power, and of course—housing. We focus on the Tri-County (Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach) region to underscore the critical commuting and employment linkages underpinning economic activity in the metropolitan area.
