The report’s amassed data ranges from 2010-18 and shows Austin is also in the top 10 nationwide of fastest-growing metros within that timeframe, coming in at No. 9 with a 26.3% population change. That translates to an additional 310,931 new residents to the Greater Austin metropolitan statistical area, or MSA.
“Since the beginning of the decade, the Austin MSA has grown by an average of 55,100 people annually, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s population estimate program,” the report states. “Much of this growth is attributable to domestic migration, roughly 55.8%, with another 13.2% due to international migration, and 29.4% from natural increase.”
The report also states that from 2013-17, Texas provided the most new residents for Austin at 52.8%, followed by California with 7%, Florida and New York at 3.3% each, Illinois at 2.4% and Arizona at 2%.
