Using US Census Bureau data and focusing on cities with at least 50,000 people, Business Insider found the places with the highest percent change in population between July 2015 and July 2016.
Conroe, Texas, a suburb of Houston, is the fastest-growing of all the cities, with a 7.8 percent population increase. Other notable cities on the list include Greenville, S.C. (5.8 percent), Bend, Ore. (4.9 percent), Madison, Wis. (1.6 percent), and Columbus, Ohio (1.2 percent).
Two states — Vermont and West Virginia — had no cities with at least 50,000 residents. In three states — Alaska, Hawaii, Delaware — every city of that size saw its population shrink over the year. Those five states are excluded.
