Why don’t you try the US census WEBsite for starters:
According to the census data, the fastest growing metro areas in the country are (percent increase from 1990 to 2000):
1- Las Vegas, FL: 83.3%
2- Naples, FL: 65.3%
3- Yuma, AZ:49.7%
4- McAllen-Edinburg-Mission, Tx :48.5%
Go to the “American Fact Finder” button, pull up and read the various reports, where the above can be found.
You’ll find many other interesting census facts, economic activity, housing permit data that allows you to examine the relationship between population growth and housing starts, and jobs etc.
