As a result of World War II, there was a major increase of Florida's population, as well as economic growth. Troops tended to move to Florida following the war, which caused a 46.1% increase in its population. World War 2 provided an opportunity for economic growth, since many troops were fighting in the war and new jobs became readily available.
