Demographics and Values

Lakeland is a smaller city outside the greater metropolitan area of Tampa/St. Petersburg. The largest employer in the region is the Publix supermarket corporation. Other major contributors to Lakeland’s economy are citrus growing and phosphate mining. Politics in Lakeland tend to lean right of center – in the 2016 election, Republicans won the vote in Polk County by about 12%. Lakeland is a great option for anyone who would like to live in a small city but still have convenient access to metropolitan amenities, with Tampa/St. Petersburg being less than an hour’s drive away.
