    The booming Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area added more residents during the past decade than any other city in the United States, according to CNNMoney.com.

    According to the latest Census Bureau figures released Tuesday:

    The population of the sprawling Texas metro area grew by about 1.3 million people, or 25 percent, between April 1, 2000, and July 1, 2009.
    The population is now estimated at 6.5 million residents, but an exact count won't be available until the 2010 census is complete.

    And, as for the reasons?
    How about the following:

    There's no corporate income tax, building costs are relatively reasonable and regulations are minimal.
