Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

My Way News - 4 Texas Cities Among Top 10 in Growth: "DALLAS (AP) - Four Texas metropolitan areas were among the biggest population gainers as Americans continued their trend of moving to the Sun Belt in 2006 and 2007, according to Census Bureau estimates to be released Thursday.

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."

"People are running away from unaffordable housing, from the economic slowdown," said Karl Eschbach, a state demographer in Texas. "I would expect Texas to stay at the top of a slowing game."

--People were also running away from the devastated Gulf Coast in LA and MS...or did that slip all the "reporters'" minds in the various iterations of this story?

They also didn't say much about the influx of immigrants from the south of us, which has certainly increased the population.
