Austin can expect a lot of growth over the next few decades. The area is projected to grow faster than any other large U.S. city by 2040, nearly doubling in size to almost 4 million residents.

Where will all of those new residents end up? Current trends show a lot of Austin's growth concentrated in the suburbs. The map above shows the increase in population by percentage across each area Census tract, according to the last two editions of the five-year U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey, from 2013 through 2014.

Explore the statistics for your neighborhood by clicking the Census tracts within the map, which includes information on median gross rent and population change over the past two years.

This clickable map shows population changes in the Austin area's Census tracts from 2013 to 2014. The blacker the tract, the more percentage increase. Red, however, signifies population percentage decreases.
