Dallas: Fastest Growing City

According to census numbers, Dallas was the fastest growing city of the past decade. Between April 1, 2000 and July 1, 2009, the metro area added 1.3 million people, or 25%.

The population is now estimated to be 6.5 million residents, but the numbers won’t be precise until the end of the census.

The Palm Coast metro area in Florida had the highest percentage increase in growth. Its population exploded by 84% over the nine-years-plus covered by the Census Bureau report. But even after the jump there were only about 92,000 people living in the area.

Dallas’s attractions include a very favorable business climate. There’s no corporate income tax, building costs are relatively reasonable and regulations are minimal.

Helping to drive growth is the area’s main airport, Dallas/Fort Worth International, the third busiest in the nation. Its location is far enough south to ensure good weather yet central enough to make it easy to fly to the Northeast, the Midwest and the Pacific Coast. It is also well positioned for air traffic with Latin American markets.
