According to this interactive map more people are moving out of Corpus then are moving in, every year for the last 5 years (2005-2010). Click on any county to see migration patterns.
American Migration [Interactive Map] - Forbes

However I see that the Wiki census population numbers show the Corpus population grew 10% from 2000 to 2010. Corpus Christi, Texas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Is there any local data on recent population growth?

Look at the 2010 census. Corpus is growing.

In 2000 the population of Corpus Christi was 278,000
In 2010 the population of Corpus Christi went up to nearly 306,000

The metro area grew from 413,000 in 2000 to 436,000 in 2010 as well.

You can look it up on the US Census website.

What appears to be conflicting information might also mean that the sector of people moving to CC might be young couples without kids, and are having kids once they get here.

I'm sure that there are some numbers missing in the infographic (ie nobody really went through and put in where every single person moved from over 5 years).

It is bases on address changes of those who file income taxes. Anyone who doesn't, would not be counted.

It doesn't appear to count me, as I moved in that time frame. Perhaps it is because I moved more than once. Either way, I know of at least two people it has missed (me and my wife).

I guess you missed this part:

This map visualizes migration data that the IRS has collected. In order to preserve privacy, the IRS only includes moves that more than 10 tax filers have made.

Then that's where the missing data likely lies. Both those that don't file taxes and places where people aren't moving to in groups of more than 10. Rural places likely don't make the cut.
Corpus isn't alone, you can find lots of cities where the data from the map shows a net negative but the population increases.
