According to city-level population estimates released Thursday morning, Georgetown, just north of Austin, is the fastest-growing U.S. city with more than 50,000 residents. It grew by 7.8 percent from mid-2014 through mid-2015, adding 4,611 residents and raising its population from 59,105 to 63,716.

San Marcos, which had the fastest growth in the U.S. for the past three years, slipped down the ranking this time. It grew by 2.4 percent from 2014-2015, adding 1,453 residents to increase its population to 60,684.
