Question/Topic: I am interested in obtaining information on the cost of living in each of Florida's 67 counties. An affluence listing would be perfect for my studies. Any info on property tax rates, housing, sales tax, gasoline tax, and median income would also be of tremendous use. 
Answer/Pointer: You can get this information from Enterprise Florida's web site. They are a public-private partnership and were created when the Florida Dept. of Commerce was dissolved several years ago. The following URL is just to the Information Center Resources section of the web site. To view their entire web site, just enter the URL up to in the location box of your browser: On this page, there are six boxes containing links to available reports. In the fourth box, select County Profiles and Maps. Select the county from the box at the top of the next page and click on the button reading County Profile. The report cotains cost of living information, tax rates, per capita income and quite a bit more information. If you prefer, select the option "Select Counties by Selected Criteria." Select an option at the top of the page, such as population 1999, select ascending or descending order, and click on Go. The table will list all counties in either ascending or descending order, by number of people.
