Charlotte is Growing - Capstone Consultants is Growing!

With the Census Bureau reporting that the South held 8 of the 15 cities with the largest population gains in 2017, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2018’s Fastest-Growing Cities in America.
To determine where the most rapid local economic growth occurred over a period of seven years, WalletHub compared 515 U.S. cities across 15 key metrics. The data set ranges from population growth to college-educated population growth to unemployment rate decrease. In addition, we produced a separate ranking by city size.

  • 94th – Poverty Rate Decrease
  • 1st – Growth in Number of Businesses
  • 34th – Working-Age Population Growth
  • 230th – Foreclosure Rate Decrease
