Texas was the number 2 state for incoming new residents in the united states in 2022 according to this National Association of Realtors article. Florida jumped over Texas to take number 1 for last year. However, over the past several years, Texas has been the most moved to state each individual year, and also with total net migration over the last 5 years.

With all the new people coming to Texas, it is no surprise the largest numbers are choosing to live in Dallas, Austin, Houston, Fort Worth etc. What IS surprising is that none of those cities comes close to being the fastest growing city in the country like one particular city in Central Texas, which has been topping the list since beginning their boom in 2020.

If you math at all, you understand how 100,000 new residents don't tip the growth scales of a city with already a million residents. That is why a city with only 100,000 can gain just 20,000, and have a growth percentage is double the bigger city that had more total people arrive.
