Durham, NC continues to be a popular place to live in the Raleigh area.

The 2010 U.S. Census results showed a 22.1% increase in Durham's population, now reaching 228,330. This population growth strongly correlates to the projected 70% increase in 2011 Durham New Home Building Permits.

  • Raleigh is the populous incorporated place in North Carolina, increasing by 46.3%

  • 14 other North Carolina counties increased in population by at least 25% including: Franklin, Johnston, Harnett, Chatham, Hoke, Union, Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, Iredell, Pitt, Camden, Currituck, Pender, and Brunswick.

  • Overall, North Carolina saw a 18.5% increase in population to 9,535,483, the second highest increase in 100 years of Census results.
