North Texas Commission

The North Texas Commission is a public-private partnership dedicated to advancing the vibrancy of the North Texas region.

Welcome to North Texas! If you’re reading this, you might fall into one of two camps, someone living in North Texas and someone exploring a relocation to the region. If you live here, we’re glad you’re here.

But if you’re like the thousands of people flocking to our region on a monthly basis, let me tell you about this dynamic place we call home.

North Texas is a 13-county region of 7.4 million people – and counting with 1 new person added every 3.6 minutes. We’re anchored by the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth with 15 cities with a population of more than 100,000 people. Since this organization was formed in 1971, the population of the region grew by 5 million people – that’s greater than today’s population of 29 of the 50 states. Geographically, North Texas is 9,000 square miles, larger than the states of New Jersey and Connecticut.
