Since Recession, DFW Has Gained Thousands Of New Residents, 1 Million Jobs

Texas rebounded from the 2008 economic recession with a decade-long recovery, and the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex in particular was a massive beneficiary, with seven-figure job growth and a massive population surge.

The Lone Star state attracted 563,945 new residents from other U.S. states in 2018 alone, with more than 200,000 of those residents heading to Dallas-Fort Worth, a new 2018 relocation report from the Texas REALTORS organization says. This growth spurt is certainly not an isolated incident, but rather a decade-long trend in North Texas. The state as a whole attracted more than a half a million people annually for six years in a row leading up to the most recent 2018 report, according to the REALTORS’ report. DFW remains atop new residents’ destination lists.
