Eight of the 15 cities or towns with the largest population gains were located in the South in 2017, with three of the top five in Texas, according to new population estimates released today by the U.S. Census Bureau. “San Antonio, Texas, tops the list with the largest population gain with an increase of over 24,200 people – an average of 66 people per day between 2016 and 2017,” said Amel Toukabri, a demographer in the Population Division of the Census Bureau. “That’s a growth rate of 1.6 percent. This growth was enough to push San Antonio’s population above the 1.5 million mark.” Regarding percentage change in population, 10 of the 15 fastest-growing large cities were located in the South, with seven in Texas.

Austin, Texas has the smallest share of millennials living at home with their mom, at 14 percent. Renters in Austin can expect to put less than 30 percent of their income toward a rental payment. Other markets with a small percentage of millennials living with Mom include Seattle, Denver and Oklahoma City. More millennials age 24-36 live with their moms than at any time in the past decade. Nearly a quarter of U.S. millennials are living at home with their mom, which translates to about 12 million young adults nationwide. The combination of rapidly rising rents and slow income growth over the past half-decade drove many young adults to either move back in or never move out of their parents’ home. Living with parents may allow young adults to pursue work or a passion that may not be especially lucrative, or save enough money for first and last month’s rent or a down payment on a home of their own. Another reason might be that millennials are wanting to enjoy life more and spend their money on travels and entertainment. They see how hard their parents worked and want to make sure they get the most out of life while they are young and can enjoy it. The median rent in the U.S. is $1,447 per month, up almost 3 percent over the past year. Click here to read the entire release. ]]>
