Forbes’s List of America’s Fastest-Growing Cities

Texas once again dominates Forbes’ list of America’s Fastest-Growing Cities, as the Lone Star State capitalized on low taxes and cheap real estate to draw in jobs from the rest of the country. To construct this list, we pulled data from Moody’s Analytics on the 100 largest metropolitan areas, giving extra weight to projected economic growth and subtracting points for low median incomes and high unemployment rates. The result is a list of cities that aren’t just growing, but creating opportunities.
