The Florida Scorecard
The Florida Chamber Foundation has created "The Florida Scorecard", an online tool that identifies and tracks key metrics that are important to Florida’s economy today and into the future. The Florida Scorecard gives stakeholders the power to measure progress on a statewide level and within their own communities.  We invite you to view our Indian River County Scorecard. The data is updated regularly (Feb. 2024 data is to the right).

If you are looking for personal assistance and site information for your business, call or email Helene Caseltine, the Chamber's Vice President of Economic Development: 772-567-3491 or
