Population growth was at its lowest level in 2014 since the Great Depression in the 1930s. Hence, population growth is a big indicator or a growing economy.
WalletHub compares 515 U.S. cities looking at 10 key metrics, such as population growth and unemployment rate decrease, to find which cities have the fastest growing economies.
For overall rank, slots in the top 10 are almost exclusively filled by Texas cities: Odessa, Frisco, Midland, Mission, College Station, Killeen, Bryan, Austin, and Round Rock. Only Kent, Wash., at number seven, was the exception.
