The U.S. Census Bureau recently released its annual list of the fastest growing cities in America, and to no surprise, many of the fastest growing cities are in Texas. The top 10 fastest growing cities all have a population over 50,000 people, and five of the top 10 were in Texas.

The list of the top 10 fastest growing cities in the U.S. is out and I had to share some of the highlights.
Cities are ranked by population growth between July 1, 2012 and July 1, 2013. The data comes from the U.S. Census Bureau.
The fastest-growing city in the U.S., according to a new report from WalletHub, is Frisco, Texas.
Frisco grew by nearly 9 percent between 2014 and 2015, according to the analysis of 515 cities across the country. It’s also ranked second for overall economic growth, behind only Lehigh Acres, Florida.
Behind Frisco were three other Texas cities: McKinney (8 percent), Georgetown (7 percent) and New Braunfels (7 percent). The report attributed this rapid expansion to the state’s strong job market and high population growth.
Cape Coral-Fort Myers, Florida; St. George, Utah; Meridian, Idaho; Bend-Redmond, Oregon; and Seattle rounded out the top 10 list.
Silicon Valley is the fastest growing metro economy in the United States, according to an analysis from The Wall Street Journal.
The San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara metro area increased its gross domestic product by 4.7 percent in 2017, beating out the Provo-Orem, Utah and Raleigh, N.C. metro areas for the top spot on a list of 308 cities.
The analysis was based on GDP data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. The bureau tracks GDP by metropolitan statistical area, which is a designation that groups counties and cities into geographic units for statistical purposes.
The Dallas-Plano-Irving metro area came in fourth with a 3.6 percent growth rate, while Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land rounded out the top five with 3.5 percent growth in 2017.
Rounding out the top 10 were Greeley, Colo.; Midland, Texas; Charleston-North Charleston, S.C.; Bend-Redmond, Ore.; and Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford, Fla., which all saw their GDP rise at least three percent during the time period analyzed by The Wall Street Journal.
Census data released last week shows that the Washington, D.C. region is the fastest growing area in the United States. The data shows that the D.C. region added about 81,000 people from July 1, 2014 to July 1, 2015 — an increase of about 1 percent.
The D.C. region includes suburbs in Maryland and Virginia but not Baltimore, which has its own Census designation as a “metropolitan area.” The Baltimore metro area added about 20,000 people over the same period last year — an increase of about 0.7 percent.
The Washington area’s population growth rate is also higher than that of any other metropolitan area in the nation with more than one million residents, according to the Census Bureau. Other fast-growing metropolitan areas include Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas; Houston; and Atlanta
