Oconee County’s rate of growth based on housing unit estimates is unsurpassed by any of its Upstate neighbors, a recently released U.S. Census Bureau report shows.

The report indicates housing units grew at a 14.3 percent rate in Oconee from 32,383 since the 2000 Census to 37,017 units as of July 2007.

The housing information helps federal government officials gauge the growth of an area at the county and state level.

Greenville County, which added 23,283 housing units during the same period, also increased at a clip of 14.3 percent to tie Oconee as the fastest growing counties in the Upstate.
