Houston a top ‘Baby Boomtown,’ Forbes says
September 17, 2014
According to Forbes, birth rates may be following the trend of job growth and the revival of the housing market in their rise. The list uses data showing the number of children ages 5 to 14 from 2000 to 2013 to analyze which cities have the strongest growth of families. Forbes said the cities on the list all seem to be suburban, affordable and largely located in the South and Intermountain West. Houston showed a 25.8 percent increase in the number of children from 2000 to 2013.
Other Texas cities to make the list include Austin, which comes in at No. 2 showing a 49.5 percent rise in the number of children ages 5-14 from 2000 to 2013. The Dallas-Fort Worth area ranked No. 6 on the list with a 28.2 percent rise in the number of children.
