Calvert County, Maryland was founded in 1654 and is one of three Maryland counties that make up the Southern Maryland region. As of 2010, Calvert County had a population of just under 89,000 people. The county's seat is in Prince Frederick and the bulk of the County makes up the Calvert Peninsula, bounded by the Chesapeake Bay and the Patuxent River.
Other than the County Government and County schools, the two largest employers in Calvert County are Calvert Memorial Hospital and Constellation Energy. Calvert County is also home to several large facilities including Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, The Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, Calvert Marine Museum, the Cove Point LNG Terminal, and the United States Naval Research Laboratory.
For the 12 month period ending March, 2013, there were just over 23,000 bankruptcy filings in Maryland. Of those filings, about 300 were filed out of Calvert County, or roughly 1%. The total for Maryland represents a roughly 7% decrease from the year before. The vast majority of filings out of Calvert County are Chapter 7 filings.
While financial times may be getting better, Calvert County's proximity to government/military employment makes its residents extremely susceptible to the impact of government spending cuts and sequestration. This financial reality makes it hard for people to feel like things are getting better and they may not be.
