Santa Rosa County is featured as No. 10 of 25 counties in the nation in CNN Money’s “Where the Jobs are - Best Places to Live – America’s Best Small Towns.” Counties were selected based on low levels of unemployment and high rates of job and population growth now and in the future as determined by a combination of census data and proprietary projections.
Only counties where each Best Place within it was also experiencing job and population growth, and where unemployment was below the national average, were considered. No more than two counties within a state could qualify. Midway, Navarre and Pace are listed as county towns as they are in CNN Money’s “Best Places” database based on a combination of Census data and projections as well.
