Texas continues to be America’s fastest-growing state, the U.S. government Census Bureau says.
美国政府人口普查局表示,德州仍是美国人口增长最快的州。
Six of the nation’s top 10 largest-gaining counties between July 1, 2016 and July 1, 2017, were in Texas, the bureau recently said in a news release.
国家统计局最近在一份新闻稿中说,在2016年7月1日至2017年7月1日之间,美国人口增长最快的10个县中有6个位于德克萨斯州。
The fastest-growing area in the country was the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area which includes 13 counties in Texas. It gained 146,000 residents last year.
德克萨斯州增长最快的地区是达拉斯-沃斯堡-阿灵顿都市区,其中包括得克萨斯州的13个县。去年,该地区增加了14.6万名居民。
Molly Cromwell is a demographer at the Census Bureau. She said the Dallas area “attracts large numbers from both international and domestic migration.” In other words, the area draws people moving within the United States and those moving to the United States from other countries.
莫莉·克伦威尔是人口普查局的人口统计学家。她说,达拉斯地区“吸引了来自国际和国内的大量移民。”换句话说,该地区吸引了美国国内的移民和从其他国家移居到美国的人。
Many large metro areas in the country, Cromwell explained, depend mostly on “international migration and natural population increase for growth.
克伦威尔解释说,德克萨斯州的许多大城市都主要依靠“国际移民和人口自然增长来增加人口”。
Lloyd Potter is Texas state demographer at the University of Texas San Antonio. He said in a statement that people most likely relocate to Texas for its “resilient economy” and cheaper housing costs.
劳埃德·波特是德克萨斯大学圣安东尼奥分校的德克萨斯州人口统计学家。他在一份声明中说,人们迁往德克萨斯州主要是因为它的“弹性经济”和廉价的住房成本。
Potter added that oil and gas production continue to be a major part of the state’s economy, but other sectors, such as information technology, manufacturing and biomedicine are important sources of job growth.
波特补充说,石油和天然气生产仍是该州经济的主要部分,但信息技术、制造业和生物医药等其他行业是就业增长的重要来源。
In addition to good jobs and cheap housing, Texas is one of the seven states with no state income tax.
除了优质工作和廉价住房之外,德州是没有州所得税的七个州之一。
Demographers expect Texas to continue to grow, though its rate of growth may slow down.
人口统计学家预计,尽管德克萨斯州人口增长率可能会放缓,但人口会不断增长。
While domestic migration is a major reason for Texas’s growth, recent international immigration is also up. And people are coming to the state from “a greater variety of nations than in the past,” Potter added.
虽然国内移民是德州人口增长的主要原因,但最近国际移民也在增加。波特还说,人们从“更多样化的国家”来到这个国家。
Texas state demographers have observed an increase in immigrants from Asian countries and a decrease from Latin American countries -- especially Mexico.
德州的人口统计学家发现,来自亚洲国家的移民数量有所增加,而拉美国家(尤其是墨西哥)的移民数量有所减少。
Potter said, “With this, migration will not only increase the size of the state’s metro areas, but also will lead to greater population diversity in these areas.”
波特说:“这样一来,移民不仅会扩大都市区的面积,而且还会使得这些地区人口更具多样性。”
