Forbes (1/27/2015)– “America’s Fastest Growing Cities”
Eric Carlyle Forbes Staff
Texas placed five cities on the list, the most of any state: after Houston, the top 3 of our list is rounded out by Austin and Dallas, followed by Fort Worth (No. 8) and San Antonio (No. 10), to give Texas half the cities in the top 10, propelled by strong population growth and unemployment levels under 5%.
In the past four years, greater Houston grew by half a million people—half from moves, half from births. Population growth means housing demand, and realtors sold more than 425,000 homes in the last five years, amounting to a home-closing rate of one every six minutes, according to the Greater Houston Partnership. What’s more, jobs boost construction, which is why last year Houston topped our list of Building Boom Towns: metro areas with the most new construction.
The Texas Tribune (March 26, 2015) - Texas Counties, Metros Among Fastest-Growing in U.S
As Texas' population continues to climb, it's the state's suburbs that are seeing the quickest growth, census figures show.
Three of the state's counties and four metropolitan areas ranked among the fastest-growing areas in the country, according to population estimates that the U.S. Census Bureau released Thursday. The estimates, which track population increases from July 2013 to July 2014, show that the most rapid growth in the state was concentrated in Central Texas suburbs, West Texas cities and the greater Houston area.
The Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land area, which includes nine counties, ranked as the 11th-fastest-growing metropolitan area. Its 2013 population of 6.3 million — 2.2 million of whom reside in Houston — grew 2.5 percent in a year
Meanwhile, Potter said Austin and Houston would continue to grow in population. But their suburbs would probably see the most growth as they take in commuters looking for affordable housing, Potter added.
"I don't really see any breaks in the near future in terms of the growth," Potter said. "That trend is going to continue.
More than a quarter of Texas’ growth from 2014 to 2015 was concentrated in the state's largest cities, but suburbs continued to grow at the fastest rates, new census figures show.
Four of the state’s suburban cities ranked among the fastest-growing areas in the country, with Georgetown topping the list, according to population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. The estimates, which track growth from July 2014 to July 2015, show the most rapid growth was concentrated in Central Texas, the greater Houston area and near Dallas.
