About the district

Charlotte County underperformed in comparison to the rest of Florida in terms of higher education achievement in 2012. The United States Census Bureau found that 21.1 percent of Charlotte County residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 26.2 percent for Florida as a whole. The median household income in Charlotte County was $44,596 compared to $47,309 for the state of Florida. The poverty rate in Charlotte County was 11.9 percent compared to 15.6 percent for the entire state.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.
