The DFW area continues to grow at a rapid pace and two recent studies have shown that this growth is affecting both the larger cities in this area as well as the smaller outlying towns.  Zippia a career expert website studied a total of 3,334 cities in the U.S. for their two separate reports.

Both Frisco Texas and McKinney Texas earned spots on their list for the country’s fastest growing (large) cities. For this report Zippia looked at the 303 U.S. cities whose population is at least 100000. The growth rate used was based off of the years 2010 to 2014 which is the most recently available data. Frisco came in at #2 on the list and there are no plans for slowing down soon; The city is projecting a growth of over 50,000 additional residents during the next 5 years.  Neighboring to the eastern border of Frisco is McKinney who ranked #6 on this list. Another Texan city made it into the Top 10: Round Rock Texas just north of Austin ranked at #9.

Moving onto the list of 10 Fastest Growing Small Cities in America you’ll find Prosper Texas a quiet community noted on multiple “best suburbs” lists.  Prosper is situated on the norther boundary of Frisco and made it to #8 out of the 3031 small cities in America with populations between 5,000 and 100,000.  Again growth rates between 2010 and 2014 were used. During this short span of time Prosper managed to more than double in size with a 53 percent increase in its population! (Hutto Texas near Austin came in just above Prosper on this list also having about a 53% increase in population.)
