Those looking for a positive statistic about New Orleans can take heart in a new Bloomberg story: Since 2010, the city grew faster in population than any other city in the United States.

"New Orleans’ growth rate outpaced six Texas locations among the fastest-rising major U.S. cities: Round Rock, Austin and the Dallas suburbs of Plano, McKinney, Frisco and Denton. Denver, Cary, North Carolina, and Raleigh rounded out the top 10. New York added the most people, increasing its population by 69,777 for a total estimated population of 8,244,910."

The story chronicles the city's long road to recovery, along with a host of other interestingly positive economic data.
