​SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – ​Texas dominated CommercialCafe’s list of the top metros for Generation Z with three cities ​in the top ten.​

Dallas ranked fourth overall​​ and first in Texas. It has 1.03 million Gen Zers, making up 12.18 percent of the city’s population. Big D was fourth in Gen Z population and sixth in number of colleges.​

No. 5 Austin and No. 6 San Antonio have 299,000 and 356,000​​ Zoomers, respectively, making up 11.41 and 13.94 percent of their populations.​
