Texas was home to six of the top 10 largest-growing counties in 2022, according to Census Bureau data out this morning.
Why it matters: America’s shift in money, people and power to the Sun Belt — propelled by COVID — is continuing even as the pandemic eases.
Driving the news: The largest gainer was Maricopa County, Ariz. (Phoenix). The other three entries on the top 10 growth counties list (numerically, as opposed to percentage growth) were in Florida — Polk, Lee and Hillsborough counties.
After the Phoenix area, the second-biggest gainer was Harris County, Texas — home of Houston.
