Citing information from the U.S. Census Bureau, the ResiClub blog recently put together a list of cities with the highest population gains year-over-year, as well as cities that saw the biggest population declines. Interestingly, the top four cities with the highest gains are in Texas, including Celina, Fulshear, Princeton, and Anna.
