I was not surprised the other day to read that Texas was the number one growth state in the United States for 2016, according to a migration trends report from U-Haul. The company ranks “growth states” by the net gain of one-way U-Haul rentals entering a state during a calendar year.
This, of course, is good news for Texas as a whole. But is it good news for all of Texas? Unfortunately, the answer is no. That’s because the significant growth in Texas continues to occur in a relatively few urban and suburban counties.
