Whopping Growth for the Austin Metro Area!

Austin Metro, in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, is beautiful, has a healthy, diverse economy, and a friendly, hometown atmosphere. It is also bursting at the seams.  Both commercial and residential construction have difficulty keeping up with the growth here.

According to the US census statistics, the Austin-Round Rock MSA has seen a population increase of a whopping 23.28%, to 2,115,827, from the 2010 census to the mid-2017 estimate. This equates to over 150 net increase per day.  By comparison, take a look at these other, larger MSAs:

Metropolitan Statistical Area             % Change        2017 Estimate

New York-Jersey City MSA                   3.85%                20,320,876

LA-Long Beach-Anaheim                     4.09%                13,353,907

Chicago-Naperville-Elgin                       .765%                 9,533,040

Dallas-Ft Worth-Arlington                 15.15%                   7,399,662

Houston-Woodlands-Sugarland      16.42%                   6,892,427

This makes the Austin Area the 2nd greatest increase amongst metro areas in the US, exceeded only by the, much less populated, Orlando-Deltona-Daytona Beach FL with an increase of 33.98% and a total 2017 population estimate of 93,420.
