Winner: Provo, Utah
Population growth 2000-2009: 47%

Since the last census, the population of this central Utah metropolitan area, which includes Provo and Orem, has grown by almost half, with a 7% spike between 2006 and 2007 alone. Much of this is a result of growing families: For every death, there were more than six births.

Rewards:

* Will likely receive additional census-based funding above the $300 million the area received in 2008.

* Utah could gain a congressional seat, for a total of 4.


NEXT: Winner: Raleigh, N.C.
