U.S. Census reports San Antonio and Texas population is booming

The San Antonio area added more than 51,000 people from 2014 to 2015, one of the largest gains in the country, according to a new report from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Combined with Austin’s gain of 57,000 people, Houston’s gain of 159,000 people and the Dallas-Fort Worth area’s gain of 145,000 people, that adds up to 412,000.

Together, those four areas had more population growth than any state in the country, except, of course Texas, which grew by 490,000 people, according to the U.S. Census.  Across the state, that population growth came everywhere, even little Loving County which grew by 28.7 percent.

In the San Antonio metropolitan area - which includes New Braunfels - Census said the change came from 33,288 births, 26,560 people moving here from other states and 6,627 people moving here from other countries. (Click here for the chart on that.)
