Austin Projected to Lead U.S. in Growth
The Austin metro area will grow more in the next five years than any other in the United States, according to a new study based on U.S. Census Data.
The projection is for Austin to grow by 7.5 percent, adding 50,000 households. In a first-place tie with Austin is Provo, Utah.
Texas claims five of the top ten big-growth cities in the Pitnes Bowes “Metro Magnets Index.” In addition to Austin were Killeen/Temple, San Antonio, Houston, and McAllen.
The study defined Austin as including Round Rock and San Marcos.
