Posted July 19, 2019 in Your Community by David Ball

The City of Hilliard has been recognized as the “Biggest Boomtown in Ohio” by gobankingrates.com in a recent data study.

GOBankingRates determined the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. by looking at the five- and 10-year changes in population, occupied housing units, owner-occupied housing units and per capita income of more than 1,600 cities with populations under 500,000.

Data was sourced from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2007, 2012 and 2017 American Community Surveys.

According to the site, “The 10-year change in the number of occupied housing units in Hilliard was 1,887, a relatively low amount compared to other cities in the study. This suburb of Columbus, however, experienced a respectable 10-year increase in average per capita income at $9,591. Additional boomtowns in the state include Mason, Grove City and Delaware.”
