The now nationally recognized city of Concord is officially the seventh fastest-growing city in the country, according to Wallethub.com.
They examined the cities that have expanded most rapidly between 2008 and 2013, analyzing a total of 516 U.S. cities of varying sizes across 10 key metrics, ranging from population growth rate to unemployment rate decrease.
The city of Concord grew from an overall population of 66,105 in 2008 to 81,981 in 2012, according to the US Census.
That growth, however, was in direct contrast to the national trend. In 2013, the United States saw its lowest population gain since the Great Depression.
