Special Report

The Fastest Growing City in Each State

Methodology

To determine the fastest growing city in each state, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed population change between July 2010 and July 2018 (the latest available data) in every U.S. metro area with data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program. The components of population growth — births, deaths, and international and domestic migration — were also from this report. Jobs added between 2010 and 2017 came from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages. February 2019 unemployment rates came from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Local Area Unemployment Statistics and are seasonally adjusted.
