These are the towns in each state that grew the fastest during the housing boom. But now that the boom is over, will they continue to grow or go bust? Editor's Note: The boomtowns were limited to places with more than 10,000 households and were ranked based on growth in households from 2000 to 2009 and from 2007 to 2008, growth in new neighborhoods from 2000 to 2008, the average length of residence, and the change in the average household income from 2000 to 2008. The data came from the Gadberry Group, except for home values, which came from Zillow.com. The variables were weighted and the 2000-08 household growth was given the most weight. The boomtowns are places, as defined by the 2000 Census block group boundaries associated with census-designated place. The ranking was created specifically for BusinessWeek by the Gadberry Group, a Little Rock-based location intelligence firm. The Gadberry Group's clients include two of the towns in the ranking: Wentzville, Mo., and Brighton, Colo. Source: The Gadberry Group
