​​​TEXAS – Suburban growth surpassed urban densification, according to the latest census county population estimates.​

Four of the five fastest-growing large cities, for the 12 months ending July 2016, are located in Texas.​The data shows that suburbs in Texas are the fastest growing cities in population.

Emerging suburban area​s are prone to being dubbed as 'fast growing' due to the smaller population base and availability of developable land.

All major metros in the Texas region showed a shift toward more suburbanization (except Tulsa) and became more urban during the 2010-2016 period.

Even large suburban counties grew at exponential rates;

  • Fort Bend County (southwest of Houston) expanded by 27 percent,
  • Williamson County (north of Austin) increased 25 percent
  • Montgomery, Denton and Collin counties, each grew by more than 20 percent
  • and Texas as a whole grew by 10.8 percent

The largest cities in Texas made the fast-growth list—San Antonio (3rd), Dallas (6th), Fort Worth (7th), Houston (8th), and Austin (9th)—with numeric population growth ranging from 17,738 to 24,473.
