How DFW's 2017 population outstrips the rest of the nation

Business First developed a computer formula that uses 15 years of demographic data to estimate the population of any community at any given moment. It focuses primarily on the 108 markets with more than 500,000 residents, which are defined as major metros.
The formula has generated each area’s populations for the beginning and end of 2017, as well as the anticipated dates when specific milestones might be reached.
Dallas-Fort Worth is the first market projected to hit such a benchmark this year, reaching a population of 7,300,000 as of Jan. 14.
Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston are expected to be the nation’s most prolific markets, each hitting a pair of milestones. The odometer for Dallas-Fort Worth is projected to show a population of 7.3 million in mid-January, as noted above, followed by 7.4 million on Oct. 21. The milestones for Houston are 6.9 million on March 13 and 7.0 million on Nov. 17.
