WASHINGTON, DC—Less celebrated than urban neighborhoods, yet more diversified, and diverse, than they’re often given credit for being, US suburbs still house the lion’s share of population. They’ve also driven the growth within their metropolitan areas: between 2000 and 2015, suburban areas accounted for 91% of the population growth and 84% of the household growth in the top 50 metro areas, according to the Urban Land Institute.
