Census: Huntsville metro area is growing fastest in Alabama

According to the Huntsville Times:

Between 2006 and 2007, the Huntsville metropolitan area experienced the 50th fastest rate of growth in the United States and the most rapid expansion out of all Alabama metros.

During that year the population here jumped from 378,054 to 386,632, a 2.3 percent increase, according to a report released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. That leaves the Huntsville Metropolitan Statistical Area, which includes Madison and Limestone counties, with about 20,000 more people than the metro area of Montgomery.

Housing crisis? What housing crisis?
