ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Floridians became a little better educated last year, were middle-of-the-pack in having access to the Internet and had the nation’s highest concentration of retail workers.

The U.S. Census Bureau released new figures on Thursday that capture the lives of Floridians last year and how they changed from the previous year.

Overall, 2013 was little different from 2012.

Many factors such as the poverty rate, the rate of residents without health insurance and the home vacancy rate remained unchanged year-to-year.

Florida was at or near the top of states with the nation’s highest concentrations of vacant homes, retail workers in the labor force and rates of residents without health insurance.

Florida also was near the top in concentrations of residents who spoke Spanish in their homes.
