Dallas-Fort Worth added more than 162,000 residents between July 2006 and July 2007, more than any other metro area. Three other Texas areas - Houston, Austin and San Antonio - also cracked the top 10.
Atlanta saw the second-largest population jump with just over 151,000 new residents. Phoenix was third with more than 132,000, and was followed by Houston, Riverside, Calif., Charlotte, N.C., Chicago, Austin, Las Vegas and San Antonio.
Surprisingly, Lubbock didn't make the list.
I'm a little surprised that there's so little growth in the Northeast. The property values thing makes sense (and yes, houses are a lot cheaper in Texas), but I thought everybody wanted to move either to NYC or Boston.
