To identify America’s 25 fastest growing cities, the website reviewed population percentage changes in U.S. metropolitan statistical areas from July 2012 to July 2017 from the U.S. Census Bureau. Median household income figures for each city are for 2017 and came from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. THey also looked at the seasonally adjusted December 2018 unemployment rate from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
