Listen: San Antonio, Metro Centennial Bennett, Houston discussed on Charlie Parker
"To the census bureau is for migration and that is about evenly distributed between migration from other states in the US and migration here from other countries. The other third is the excess of verse over deaths which is larger at metro centennial Bennett is in most cities just simply because our population is younger, though, single fastest growing year for metro San Antonio is the twelve months between July first of two thousand fourteen and the twelve months and July first twenty fifteen where we added about fifty one thousand people, but that turns out to be about average that turns out to be about roughly what we're seeing every year about a growth of about fifty thousand people in this area every year, and they're. There is no indication that that growth is showing any signs of slacking off several Texas metros are in the top twenty when it comes to the fastest growing metro area. Austin as I mentioned is the third fastest in the country Midland powered by the growth in the Permian oilfields says the fourth fastest growing metro in the country. Houston is growing faster than San Antonio on a percentage basis metro Houston now up to six point eight million. Dallas Fort Worth is growing not as fast as San Antonio. But it's still among the twenty-five fastest growing metros in the country the metro population today, according to the census bureau, two million four hundred seventy three thousand nine hundred seventy four. So that's why you're having trouble getting to work on Luke four ten this morning. And that growth is going to continue will clearly by the time, the twenty twenty cents has come up. And the reason this is being mentioned today. This is twenty twenty cents a day the city this morning will unveil. It's plans for making. Sure, everything is counted. There is no doubt that when the population is counted in twenty twenty the population of this metro will be two point seven million or more about the same size of Seattle. All right, Jim. Thanks very much.."
