​​​​​​TEXAS – For the first time in five years, Central Texas is not atop the annual U.S. Census list of fastest-growing U.S. cities.

But Texas did continue to dominate the population growth rankings.​​

This list includes cities and towns with populations of 50,000 or more as of July 1, 2015.

Georgetown, which ranked fifth in the latest U.S. Census list with a 5.5 percent growth rate in 2015-16, topped last year's rankings. 

Prior to that, the list was topped three years in a row by San Marcos, located between Austin and San Antonio.

New Braunfels ranked as the ninth fastest-growing U.S. city, and Cedar Park ranked 12th. 

Other Central Texas cities to make the list include Round Rock (18) and Pflugerville (23).​​​​​
