America's Fastest-Growing Small Towns

Methodology

To identify the 50 fastest growing towns in America, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed population data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Population and Housing Unit Estimates Program. Places are ranked by the percent population change from July 1, 2010 to July 1, 2020. =

For the purposes of this story, towns are defined by their population. Only incorporated places with populations between 1,000 and 25,000 on July 1, 2010 were considered. 

We also considered median household income, the share of households earning over $200,000 annually, and unemployment. Each of these supplemental measures is a five-year estimate from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2020 American Community Survey.
