Concord Ranked One of the Fastest Growing Cities in America

452

With the Census Bureau reporting that the South and West held 13 of the 15 cities with the largest population gains between 2010 and 2019, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2020’s Fastest-Growing Cities in America.

To determine where the most rapid local economic growth occurred over a period of seven years, the site compared 515 U.S. cities across 17 key metrics. The data set ranges from population growth to college-educated population growth to unemployment rate decrease. In addition, we produced a separate ranking by city size.

Concord ranked #24 overall and #7 for small cities. Charlotte ranked #11 for large cities.
