Some of a metro area's population growth is from natural increase (more births than deaths) while another component is net migration (more people moving in than moving out). So, using US Census stats, here are the top metropolitan areas for net migration from 2006-2007:

1. Atlanta 99,829
2. Phoenix 90,230
3. Dallas 56,844
4. Houston 56,333
5. Charlotte 51,904
6. Austin 48,415
7. Las Vegas 42,548
8. Riverside CA 41,246
9. Raleigh 36,081
10. Fort Worth 35,719
11. San Antonio 34,950
12. Denver 28,236
13. Portland OR 26,797
14. Nashville 24,483
15. Tampa 23,947
16. Seattle 19,963
17. Orlando 19,405
18. Cape Coral FL 18,616
19. Boise 13,970
20. Lakeland FL 13,472
21. Tucson 13,316
22. Jacksonville FL 13,224
23. Sacramento 12,266
24. Richmond 11,566
25. Indianapolis 11,350

And the biggest losers (more people moving out than moving in):

1. Los Angeles -93,881
2. New York City -46,043
3. Detroit -35,296
4. Fort Lauderdale -21,756
5. Nassau NY -20,098
6. Anaheim -16,267
7. Norfolk-Virginia Beach -14,082
8. Cleveland -13,579
9. Newark -10,719
10. Warren MI -10,552
11. Columbus GA -9,290
12. Honolulu -8,608
13. Providence -8,255
14. Baltimore -8,104
15. Chicago -7,559
16. Buffalo -5,890
17. Youngstown OH -5,623
18. Flint MI -5,574
19. Dayton OH -5,385
20. Philadelphia -5,199
21. Milwaukee -5,094
22. Miami -5,008
23. Toledo -4,399
24. Pittsburgh -4,279
25. Rochester NY -4,018

And what the heck, here's Omaha's:

1,437 more people moved into metro Omaha than moved out, although that was all international migration. Omaha lost 127 residents between 2006-2007 to internal (domestic) migration.

The thing about Los Angeles and Anaheim is a fair amount of those people moved and are moving to Riverside, most of Riversides net migration is from within the same metro area/region.

It's an easy concept. More people can move out of an area than move into an area, yet the area can still grow in population because of the natural increase. Natural increase essentially means lots of babies.

So in the case of places like Los Angeles and New York where more people are moving out than moving in, the population can still increase because there are more babies being born and not as many people dying.

Besides, I'm just quoting Census stats. If you have a problem with the stats, don't shoot the messenger.

I'm not surprised to see Atlanta at the top, I only lived there for a year and a half, and it changed quite dramatically in that year and a half....urban sprawl.

Most of those cities that are gaining population aren't so much as popular as they are cheap to live in. I'd still take what Chicago has to offer over the top ten gainers any day.

Foreign Immigration accounts for much of the growth in these cities in addition to births over deaths.

I agree, I would much rather live in Chicago than ATL or Phoenix or Charlotte, any day of the week.........
