Texas Triangle saw 5.3 million increase in population in 15 years

Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio make up the Texas Triangle
  • Houston saw the largest amount of housing permits out of the four metros between 2000 and 2015.
  • San Antonio saw the least amount of housing permits, but it saw a slight increase from 2014 to 2015.
  • Austin and Houston saw dips in housing permits annually in 2015.

In the last 15 years, the cities that make up the Texas Triangle have witnessed a boom in population. Lower costs of living and cost for employeers have helped keep the Lone Star State alive, even as the oil economy is falling behind.
