Indiana’s Twenty Fastest Growing Cities and Towns, 2000 to 2005*
- Seven cities grew more than 30 percent from 2000 to 2005, six of which
were in the Indianapolis metro area. The other was the city of Winfield
in Lake County.
- None of the fastest growing cities and towns were located in the northeast
or southwest portion of Indiana, but all were a part of major metro areas.
- When looking at percent change, smaller cities sometimes show up as
the fastest growing because even a change of just a few people will cause
a large change in the percentage. This is the case for Whitestown, which
saw a 43.9 percent change from 2000 to 2005, but a numeric change of
only 210 people. The only other city with less than 1,000 people to make
the fastest growing list was Trafalgar.
- More than half of the top twenty fastest growing cities and towns had
at least 5,000 people, with Indianapolis being the largest. Fishers had
the largest numeric growth, with 19,274 new residents.
