Austin metro area surpasses 2 million residents

PopulationGrowth_BlogThe Austin metro area is officially home to more than 2 million people, according to U.S. Census Bureau numbers.

From July 2014 to July 2015, the Austin-Round Rock metropolitan area—which includes Travis, Williamson, Hays, Bastrop and Caldwell counties—grew from 1,943,465 to 2,000,860, making it the fastest-growing metropolitan area with a population over 1 million for the fifth year in a row. 

Three nearby counties — Hays, Williamson and Comal, all located just south of the Austin metro area on the way to San Antonio — were among the top 20 fastest-growing counties in the country.

One of the most significant things about surpassing the 2 million-person mark is that it shows Austin is in a new league, one that requires more and better infrastructure.

A growing population brings bigger challenges – congested traffic, pressures on affordability, exploding school enrollment, etc.
