HOKE COUNTY IS NO LONGER AMONG THE MOST DISTRESSED COUNTIES IN NORTH CAROLINA

Hoke County NC Established 1911

The NC Department of Commerce released its 2020 Tier Rankings last week.  The State’s Tier Ranking System gives a glimpse at a county’s economy.  Hoke County’s tier designation improved from Tier 1 (most economically distressed) to Tier 2 (less economically distressed).

Tier designations are based upon the following criteria:

  • Average unemployment rate,
  • Median household income,
  • Percentage growth in population, and
  • Property tax base per capita.

In Hoke County, the local unemployment rate has declined and the median income for households has risen.  Much of this can be attributed to the current Board of Commissioners’ more aggressive approach to attracting businesses and industry to Hoke County which expand our tax base and provide jobs for our citizens.
