Half of the 10 fastest-growing cities in the U.S. can be found in Texas, according to a recent report from the U.S. Census Bureau.
 
In an analysis of the populations of cities with at least 50,000 residents between July 1, 2015, and July 1, 2016, the Houston suburb of Conroe, Texas, was crowned the nation’s fastest-growing city, with a 7.8 percent growth spurt. In comparison, the national average for population growth during that 12-month period was a mere 0.7 percent. Other Texas cities experiencing rapid growth are second-place Frisco (6.2 percent), third-place McKinney (5.9 percent), fifth-place Georgetown (5.5 percent) and ninth-place New Braunfels (4.7 percent).
 
The remainder of the top 10 list were either in the South or the West: fourth-place Greenville, S.C. (5.5 percent), fifth-place Bend, Ore. (4.9 percent), sixth-place Buckeye, Ariz. (4.8 percent), seventh-place Bonita Springs, Fla. (4.8 percent) and tenth-place Murfreesboro, Tenn. (4.7 percent).
