Statistics Prove DFW’s Growing Population is Ranked #1 in Country

We have all read it and heard this before, but statistics prove that DFW’s growing population is ranked #1 in the country. According to Culture Map Dallas, estimates from the U.S Census Bureau state we welcomed 140,000 new residents last year…the most of any metroplex in America. Guess who was second? Our neighbors the Houstonians!
