Fort Worth is tenth fastest-growing city in the nation
(Demographics : Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington6/30/2009

(Fort Worth) – Fort Worth was the tenth fastest-growing city in the country in 2008, and three other Texas towns were in the top ten, according to U.S. census population estimates released Tuesday.

Texas was well-represented among the fast gainers. Round Rock, north of Austin, was number two on the list with a gain of 7,877 residents. McKinney was number five and Killeen was number nine on the growth chart of cities with populations over 100,000.

However, Fort Worth, which added 24,413 residents over the 12-month period and grew to 703,073, stands out in the crowd, census demographer Greg Harper said.

"If you look at the ten fastest-growing cities, Fort Worth is number ten, but it is by far the largest city among the ten," Harper said. "It is growing at 3.6 percent over that time, and it is a little unusual to see a city of that size among the fastest-growing. If you look at the top 25, it is still the largest city among those cities in terms of percent change from 2007 to 2008."

In Dallas, an increase of 13,538 people made for a total population of 1,279,910. See other demographics & news at               Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University
