More Americans Are Moving to Texas

9V;RY~)E[lw(kw

Texas continues to be America's fastest-growing state, the U.S. government Census Bureau says.

Od*gUKar2_

Six of the nation's top 10 largest-gaining counties between July 1, 2016 and July 1, 2017, were in Texas, the bureau recently said in a news release.

IwU+^@O@AsIp*yLjn^Q

The fastest-growing area in the country was the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area which includes 13 counties in Texas. It gained 146,000 residents last year.

A#dQEY!^~TXo7

Molly Cromwell is a demographer at the Census Bureau. She said the Dallas area "attracts large numbers from both international and domestic migration." In other words, the area draws people moving within the United States and those moving to the United States from other countries.

Many large metro areas in the country, Cromwell explained, depend mostly on "international migration and natural population increase for growth.

Lloyd Potter is Texas state demographer at the University of Texas San Antonio. He said in a statement that people most likely relocate to Texas for its "resilient economy" and cheaper housing costs.

Potter added that oil and gas production continue to be a major part of the state's economy, but other sectors, such as information technology, manufacturing and biomedicine are important sources of job growth.

CIUw+LQZl5hAhB

In addition to good jobs and cheap housing, Texas is one of the seven states with no state income tax.

averwr~oU1[WzV

Demographers expect Texas to continue to grow, though its rate of growth may slow down.

[dlLKfcg-ylc(COpM

While domestic migration is a major reason for Texas's growth, recent international immigration is also up. And people are coming to the state from "a greater variety of nations than in the past," Potter added.

D-v%UUFVLian=2AgM2vY

Texas state demographers have observed an increase in immigrants from Asian countries and a decrease from Latin American countries -- especially Mexico.

Potter said, "With this, migration will not only increase the size of the state's metro areas, but also will lead to greater population diversity in these areas."
