Clarksville Among Fastest Growing Cities



The City of Clarksville is the fifth fastest growing city in the United States over the past two years, according to Census figures released today. The 2012 population estimate of just over 142,000 people was a 4.43-percent increase from the 2010 Census.

Eight of the top 13 growing cities were in Texas, with San Marcos the fastest growing at just under five-percent.

One of the cities with the largest decrease in residents was Joplin, Missouri, which was devastated by a 2011 tornado and saw a decrease of over 1,000 residents.
The U.S. Census Bureau released the list of the fastest growing cities with over 50,000 in population and county by county estimates nationwide.

Locally, Christian County and Todd County were in the top 15 fastest growing counties in the state over the last two years. Census estimates showed Christian County with a two-percent increase or 1482 people from 2010 to 2012.
Todd County increased almost 200 residents or 1.5-percent. The estimates showed Trigg County with an increase of 108 residents, which was 42nd fastest in the state.

Eight of the ten fastest growing counties in the state were in the golden triangle region, with Warren County in fifth and Meade County in seventh the only exceptions. Christian County was the 12th fastest growing county, while Todd County was 15th.
