The US Census Bureau released on March 27, 2008 charts showing the fastest growing metro areas as of July 1, 2007. Ok so I am stretching it a bit to just say Fort Mill. So I really mean the Charlotte metropolitan statistical area (MSA) which is ranked 6th with the highest number of population growth and ranked 7th in percent of growth.
I did online research on the Census Bureau’s website to find out what the N.C-S.C. part of the label means in the chart below. The York County South Carolina cities are included in the Charlotte (MSA).
Eight of the 10 fastest-growing metro areas between 2006 and 2007 were located in the South.
The largest cities include New York which was the most populous metro area on July 1, 2007, with 18.8 million people, followed by Los Angeles (12.9 million) and Chicago (9.5 million). The rest of the top ten in order:
- Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, TX
- Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD
- Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, TX
- Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach, FL
- Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV
- Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, GA
- Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, MA-NH
Those of us who live in the Fort Mill and Tega Cay can validate the recent growth in our area. But amazingly we have kept our small town southern feel. Contact Carmen Miller to find out why so many people want to relocate to the Fort Mill and Tega Cay SC. area.
