Cities in Arizona, Texas and Florida lead population boom

America’s top 15 cities by percentage growth last year were clustered in Arizona, Texas and Florida, with a few in Idaho and one in Tennessee.

Why it matters: The U.S. is spreading out, heading South and West and creating new boomtowns, tech hubs and rising power centers.

A Census Bureau release last week showed Georgetown, Texas, had the most growth from July 2020 to July 2021 — 10.5%, a rate that would double the population in less than seven years.

  • Next were Leander, Texas (10.1%) … Queen Creek Town, Ariz. (8.9%) … Buckeye, Ariz. (8.6%) … and New Braunfels, Texas (8.3%).

The sixth-fastest-growing area was Fort Myers, Fla. (6.8%).

  • Then Casa Grande, Ariz. (6.2%) … Maricopa, Ariz. (6.1%) … North Port, Fla. (5.5%) … Spring Hill, Tenn. (5.4%) … Goodyear, Ariz. (5.4%) … and Port St. Lucie, Fla. (5.2%).

Three suburbs of Boise, Idaho were in spots 13-15: Meridian (5.2%) … Caldwell (5.2%) … and Nampa (5.0%).

San Antonio topped the list of largest numeric gainers (graphic above).
