Large Southern Cities Lead Nation in Population Growth

“Georgetown, Texas is the fastest growing city by rate of change in 2022 and has the highest growth rate of all U.S. cities and towns with a population of 50,000 or more. It wasn’t the only city that held that edge all year long,” said Crystal Delbe, a statistician with the Census Bureau’s Population Division. “Despite its recent population decline, New York remains the nation’s largest city. With a population of 8.3 million, she has 8.3 million people, followed by the next largest city, Los Angeles, with a population of about 4 million. It was more than twice as big as her.”

The 14.4% increase in population in Georgetown, Texas was followed by a 12.5% ​​increase in Santa Cruz, California, adding about 7,000 people. His next three fastest growing cities were also in Texas: Kyle, Leander and Little Elm.

Texas was the only state with three or more cities included in both the numerical change and rate of change lists of the 15 fastest growing large cities and towns. Fort Worth, Texas, will have the most population growth in 2022, with an increase of 19,170. Phoenix, Arizona (19,053); San Antonio, Texas (18,889); Seattle, Washington (17,749); and Charlotte, North Carolina (15,217) rounded out the top five cities with increasing numbers.
