Anyone have any good population estimates for the city of Fort Worth itself (not the county or metro area)? The reason I ask is because I think it'd be pretty nifty to be part of a metro area with two cities of a million people each.

I see that Fort Worth has added just 200,000 people in two years; if this level of growth continues without change then Fort Worth would reach 1,000,000 sometime around 2022 or 2023 or so. But it its pretty hard to know how migration patters will be 13 years from now!

Also, how much of Fort Worth's population growth has come from annexation, if any?

Inquiring mind wants to know!

The majority of Fort Worth population boom has taking place in North Fort Worth and I believe the city will reach 1 million mark before the 2020 census. When the economy get back up and running North Fort Worth and downtown Fort Worth will continue to be prime real estate. Tarrant County as a whole is really booming.

I'm not sure how many people moved to FW in the last two years, but its a fraction of 200K.

That is because I accidentally mistyped two instead of ten. My bad!

Yes, it has been 200,000 since 2000.

I would have to say it would be around 80% if not more. No city grows by that much in a decade without swallowing up smaller cities, that's how Phoenix did it.

People are moving to Texas and I don't see why that would change anytime soon.

It seems like with the new trinity river project Fort Worth might outgrow Dallas.
