​​AUSTIN – In 2016, the Austin area added 159 people per day on average—that's the net gain, according to the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

After taking into account 40,273 migrants, 27,375 births and 10,304 deaths, the regional population climbed by 58,301 to an estimated 2,056,405,

When just looking at migrants, about 110 people per day moved to the Austin area from July 1, 2015, to July 1, 2016.

The Austin metro—which includes Travis, Hays, Williamson, Burnet and Caldwell counties—expanded by 2.9 percent.

While that's the ninth-fastest rate of growth among U.S. metro areas, Austin is the fastest-growing metro of its size.

Meanwhile, Hays County to the south of Austin was the third-fastest growing county in the nation last year, expanding by 5.1 percent with the addition of 9,896 new residents.

For the most part, the growth is expected to keep coming—though perhaps at a slower pace than recent years.
