Of all major markets in the country, Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) showed the most growth in recent years, adding 1.3 million people between April 1, 2000 and July 1, 2009, according to a report from the Census Bureau and CNNMoney.com. DFW now has a population of 6.5 million people, growing 25 percent during the period measured. Atlanta and Houston also experienced significant growth.
Growth has been spurred in part by a favorable business climate: no corporate income tax, reasonable building costs and minimal regulations. The report also mentioned Dallas/Fort Worth International, the third busiest airport in the nation. (6/22/10)
