New Orleans is America’s Fastest Growing City

The U.S. Census Bureau recently announced that New Orleans grew faster than any other major U.S. city in the 15 months after the 2010 decennial headcount.

Forbes reports that, “Evidence also shows that the growing population is not just the result of returning residents, as newcomers have also been lured into the city. In fact, according to a study conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation, one in nine current New Orleans residents were not living in the area prior to Hurricane Katrina. The group represents a demographic of people who are more likely to be younger and better educated, further contributing to the city’s recovery and reform.”

And Bloomberg reports that, “the unemployment rate in Orleans Parish was 7.2 percent in May, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a full point below the national average.”

It’s certainly a great time to be in New Orleans, and Corporate Realty is proud to call NOLA our hometown.
