Austin added 30,221 new residents between April 2010 and July 2011 to join Houston, San Antonio and Dallas in leading the southern United States in population growth.
Houston topped the Business Journals’ On Numbers list, adding 45,716 people in 15 months, while San Antonio grew by 32,152 and Dallas by 25,413 people. The population data came from estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Texas has the strongest economy in the South, so it’s no surprise that the state would lead in population growth, too, On Numbers reports.
On Numbers, a feature of American City Business Journals, has a database of the 6,125 cites, towns and villages in the South.
