Many Americans are moving to places where the life expectancy is much higher due to improvements in lifestyle , medications, and better healthcare. They also go because people are happier there, according to international surveys.

Some of these places are actually in the U.S.

Most of the top 15 cities or towns with the largest population gains were located in the South in 2017, with three of the top five in Texas, according to new population estimates released today by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The West had the highest share of its population living within an incorporated place (76.7 percent), followed by the Midwest (71.4 percent) as of July 1, 2017. The Northeast had the smallest population of its residents living in incorporated places (51.4 percent).
