We're #9 with a growth rate of 32.5%: 10 fastest growing U.S. cities - Charlotte, N.C. (1) - CNNMoney

Oh and Charlotte is #1 followed by Raleigh at #2.

I had to read the article to see exactly what metric was being measured here because I know for a fact it wasn't the municipal, MSA, or CSA populations. It's actually measuring urbanized area population. While Greenville is cheated a bit since the adjacent Mauldin-Simpsonville area is its own UA, it's nonetheless good to see robust growth in the area.

this is a surprising article.

i've been reading around for diff stats like this. however, i agree, what's this based off?

I was just telling Becky Cat Charlotte has taken a huge leap past us in the last 15 years but it's still impressive for Greenville to make a national list. I still feel we should be up there with Charlotte but our youth population leaves every year to CLT / ATL. Notice Austin Texas says keeping their youth entertained is there "800 lbs gorilla"

However, i would like to note this list is not accurate if based off general statistics. Anybody who knows something about 'population boom' right now , KNOWS that North Dakota is seeing the biggest growth of the US in the last 10 years as a state. People are driving there and sleeping in parking lots hoping to get jobs. The money being made there is ridiculous . The phenomenon going on there is something that happens once per few generations.

Haha, I dont have any data. But down here in the Lowcountry, it seems everyone down here is from "up there".
