Growth in Cities Is Slower Than in Suburbs

October 29, 2000|Inman News Features

New government figures show that big cities are getting bigger but aren't growing as fast as suburbia.

Nationwide, cities in the nation's largest metropolitan areas jumped 4% in population between April 1990 and July 1999, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The regions outside of big cities saw populations grow 14.1%.

The fastest-growing city in the country during the '90s was Las Vegas, which saw a 62% growth spurt, according to census figures.

Following Las Vegas were Laredo, Texas, with a 45% increase; McAllen-Edinburg-Mission, Texas, with a 39.5% jump; Boise, Idaho, with a 37.9% increase; and Naples, Fla., with a 36.1% rise.
