Name The Fastest Growing City In The Midwest

Des Moines added roughly 33 residents a day during the past year, making it the fastest growing city in the Midwest, according to new Census Bureau data.
The metro area's population increased 2 percent in the 12-month period ending July 2016, according to annual Census estimates released Thursday. That outpaced every city in the region and was only eclipsed by cities in booming parts of the south, Mountain West and Pacific Coast.
During the past year, greater Des Moines added 12,145 residents to grow to a total population of 634,725, the Census data show.
Over the past decade, greater Des Moines has out-performed Kansas City, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Chicago and Milwaukee, not only in population growth, but in job growth and GDP.
