The most rapidly growing counties across America

The fastest growth goes to…

1895 Railroad Map of FloridaWhen analyzing population growth, most economists focus on specific metro areas, but when looking at data on a county level, the most rapidly growing areas looks quite different than the largest growing metros. Below is a list of the ten fastest growing counties across the United States according to Forbes.com, is the area you practice in featured below? What is the cause of the growth in the ten areas below?

The top 10 fastest growing counties:

  1. Flagler County, FL
  2. Kendall County, IL
  3. Rockwall County, TX
  4. Pinal County, AZ
  5. Sumter County, FL
  6. Forest County, PA
  7. Forsyth County, GA
  8. St. John’s County, FL
  9. Lake County, FL
  10. Lyon County, NV

Forbes points to a rise in suburban homeownership as a major contributor to the growth in these counties. As these areas grow, tax revenues will grow with them, so improvements will be made over the coming years to these areas. It will be interesting to look at if these are still growth sectors in five years.

      We live in Travis county and although it is growing, it’s harder to grow a large number than it is a small number, so Williamson is growing faster than Travis because there’s more room to grow, more subdivisions to build, more blank land, etc. But Travis should be on all lists, don’t you agree!
