The 12 Texas cities millions of people are moving to

Business Insider Logo By Andy Kiersz of Business Insider | Slide 1 of 13: 
  Texas' population has been growing rapidly for years, and a
  big part of that growth comes from the millions of people who
  have moved there from around the US and the rest of the world.
  
  Using data from the US Census Bureau, we ranked Texas' large
  metro areas by total net migration between 2010 and 2018,
  adjusted by 2010 population.
  
  Texas' largest cities were at the top of the list, as well as
  Midland, a major hub of the fracking boom.

  Texas is one of the 
  fastest-growing parts of the US.
  A big factor in the Lone Star State's growth is the millions of
  people who have moved there from around the country and the rest
  of the world over the last decade.

  Using data from
  the US Census Bureau, we ranked the metropolitan
  statistical areas in Texas by total net migration between
  2010 and 2018 - the number of people who moved into the metro
  area during that period from another part of the US or another
  country, minus people who moved out of the metro area - adjusted
  by the metro area's 2010 population.

  Texas' biggest cities appear at the top of the list, a contrast
  to the 
  fates of some other large metro areas in the US. Also near
  the top was Midland, a 
  major hub of the oil and gas boom of the last decade.

  Here are the top 12 metro areas in Texas by that metric:
