Fort Worth ranked fourth by number of new residents and dethroned Indianapolis as the country’s 15th most populous city. With 18,664 incomers, Cowtown’s 2017 population totaled 874,168 residents.

For those who have seen Frisco’s rapid business and real estate growth, it’s likely no surprise the city ranked ninth for numeric increase, with 13,470 new residents. Now at a population of 177,286, the city also ranked as the country’s fast-growing city, with an 8.2 percent jump.

Two other North Texas cities ranked among those with the largest percentage increases, with McKinney logging a 4.8 percent hike and Flower Mound recording a 4.3 percent boost.

Dallas’ fellow Texas city to the south, San Antonio, took first among the cities with the largest number of new residents, adding 24,208 for a 2017 population of 1,511,946.
