New U.S. Census Bureau numbers show some Texas counties and metropolitan areas are growing because of both domestic and international migration.

New numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau show Texas is still growing.

From Texas Standard:

It’s no surprise that the Texas population continue to grow. The state’s major cities are all getting bigger, but it’s the areas surrounding the urban core – the suburbs – where growth rates are highest.

Texas continues to attract new residents from across the country and elsewhere. New data from the U.S. Census Bureau supports projections that the state’s population will double by the year 2050.

The study reflects population growth between the years 2010 and 2014. Over that time, the population of Texas grew by 1.8 million people or by 7 percent. Suburban growth outpaced that of major metropolitan areas.

In fact, the in-fill between Austin and San Antonio is an area that some are calling the “new DFW” — with consistent year-over-year growth in corridor towns like New Braunfels and San Marcos, which was ranked nationally as the fastest-growing city in the nation for the third year in a row.
