According to the U.S. Census Bureau, San Antonio had the largest numeric population gain in the country from 2016-2017, for U.S. cities of at least 50,000 residents. With a growth rate of 1.6 percent, the city added at least 24,200 people in that year-long period.
Census data also shows that five of the top 15 U.S. cities that added the most people – plus seven of the country's fastest-growing cities – are located in Texas.
The San Antonio area is now home to more than 1.5 million people and the city's population is projected to add 1 million more by 2040.
