How Fast is Austin Growing?
Here are some quick US Census numbers to consider:
- From 2010 to 2014, Travis County grew by 126,879 people.
- Williamson County, during this same period, grew by 66,571 people.
The numbers here would suggest that the normalized growth during this period for these 2 counties (which is actually not all inclusive of the are that we consider Greater Austin today), comes out to about 132.5 people a day or 48,362.5 people a year! That's a lot of people.
Austin is not the only city in Texas that is growing, but people are coming to Austin every day from other states and other countries to find jobs, raise a family and call Austin home.
