Reference Shelf: Lists & Rankings: Fastest Growing Cities in the U.S.

The fastest growing place in each of the 50 states (via Businessweek.com).

Topping the list is Olive Branch, Mississippi.

Rankings by Gadberry Group.

The area used in Gadberry’s analysis is not intended to correspond to city or municipal boundaries. As a result, the data does not correspond with results from the 2000 and 2010 Census. In most cases the area discussed includes the city or town and surrounding areas contained within Census block groups associated with the city or place by the U.S. Census Bureau, in order to account for sprawl. Trends for a greater area may thus differ from those of a city, as growth often occurs beyond city boundaries.
