For the second year in a row, Georgetown is the fastest-growing city in the U.S. for cities with a population above 50,000, according to new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Georgetown’s growth rate was 14.4 percent from July 1, 2021, through July 1, 2022, resulting in a population estimate of 86,507.
Georgetown added 10,887 more residents than the Census estimate from a year ago.
“Job growth in Georgetown and across the Austin metro continues to bring new residents to our city,” Mayor Josh Schroeder said. “People are moving here for the same reasons that brought many of us to Georgetown—wonderful and safe neighborhoods, fantastic parks and events, and welcoming people. We continue to adjust our plans and build new infrastructure to maintain the great quality of life for all of us who are proud to call Georgetown our home.”
Georgetown’s population was 67,176 in the 2020 census. According to today’s estimate, Georgetown has added 19,331 residents since 2020.
Leander and Kyle both had strong showings within the top five.
Just to the south of Georgetown, census numbers show Austin is now the tenth-largest city in the nation, yet still remains fourth-largest in Texas.
