Austin-Area Cities Among Nation’s Fastest Growing

WASHINGTON, D.C. (U.S. Census Bureau) – The Austin area became the nation’s capital for population growth in 2013, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates released yesterday.
San Marcos, Cedar Park and Georgetown ranked among the ten fastest-growing cities with populations of 50,000 or more during the year ending July 1, 2013.
San Marcos was number one in percent growth for the second consecutive year, with Austin gaining more people (nearly 21,000) than any city with fewer than one million residents.
The South and West dominated the list of fastest-growing municipalities between 2012 and 2013, claiming all of the top 15. Seven of those were in Texas (Frisco, McKinney, Odessa and Pearland were the other four).
In terms of numeric growth, 13 of the 15 cities that added the most people between 2012 and 2013 were in the South or West, except for New York City, which ranked first in numeric population growth. Five were Texas cities: Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth.
