That is a good list. However, note that there are only a handful+ of top20 metros that hit this 10% quota.

They are in order of largest to smallest, percentage-wise:

1. Houston
2. Dallas
3. Denver
4. Phoenix
5. Seattle
6. Atlanta
7. Washington

A couple notes that are just opinion by me...Hurricane Harvey is not accounted for in Houston's population of this period, so that might have changed the end results, however I would doubt by much. Also Washington does well when a Democrat is President, which is the case during most of this period, but again probably not by much.

4. Phoenix
5. Seattle
6. Atlanta
7. Tampa
8. Miami
9. Washington

My error.

Not sure what you are looking at. My list was only the top 20 MSA markets. The latest numbers (2017) are below. (Tampa #18, Charlotte #22)

Like pnwguy2 mentioned, only 9 out of the top 20 largest metroplexes has seen at least a 10% increase in population since 2010:

(1) 3.85% New York-Newark-Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA MSA
(2) 4.09% Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA MSA
(3) 0.76% Chicago-Naperville-Elgin, IL-IN-WI MSA
(4) 15.15% Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, TX MSA
(5) 16.42% Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land, TX MSA
(6) 10.30% Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV MSA
(7) 10.68% Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach, FL MSA
(8) 2.19% Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD MSA
(9) 11.31% Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell, GA MSA
(10) 6.24% Boston-Cambridge-Newton, MA-NH MSA
(11) 12.98% Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ MSA
(12) 9.04% San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, CA MSA
(13) 8.42% Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario, CA MSA
(14) 0.39% Detroit-Warren-Dearborn, MI MSA
(15) 12.42% Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, WA MSA
(16) 7.52% Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington, MN-WI MSA
(17) 7.83% San Diego-Carlsbad, CA MSA
(18) 11.07% Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL MSA
(19) 13.55% Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, CO MSA
(20) 3.60% Baltimore-Columbia-Towson, MD MSA

If want to include the top 25 largest metroplexes in the US, you would have 4 more locations (Charlotte, Orlando, San Antonio and Portland) that saw at least a 10% population growth since 2010:

(21) 0.70% St. Louis, MO-IL MSA
(22) 13.91% Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia, NC-SC MSA
(23) 17.59% Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford, FL MSA
(24) 15.47% San Antonio-New Braunfels, TX MSA
(25) 10.20% Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro, OR-WA MSA
