Texas cities grew faster than any other in the nation according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Dallas-Fort Worth ballooned by nearly 132,000 people from July 011 to July 2012.

Since 2010 that number is nearly 275,000 people, which outstrips any other city in the nation.

Houston grew by more than 125,000 in the same one year period, which made it number 2 in growth.

Harris County, which makes up a large part of Houston, gained 80,000 residents which makes it the fastest growing county in the country.

Rural Texas shows the opposite.

96 rural Texas counties saw their populations shrink from 2010 to 2012.
