This Friday, world leaders will adopt a new global development framework, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim to eradicate poverty and inequalities and spur economic growth while respecting planetary boundaries.

You can debate whether the comparison is very useful, due to variations in land area. But there’s no denying that Texas is growing fast. The Lone Star State is attracting two-and-a-half times more new households from other states than the next biggest gainer: Florida.
