AUSTIN - The city has been pegged as the fastest growing large metro area in the country, according to the U.S. Census' latest population estimates. Between July 2012 and July 2013 the Austin metro area grew by 2.6 percent, or 47,941 to a population of 1.9 million residents.

Houston and San Antonio are also in the top ten nationwide for population growth.

The report notes that the unemployment rate in the metro area fell to 4.7 percent in January, the lowest unemployment rate for cities with a population of more than 1 million.

Austin Demographer Ryan Robinson told CNN that the city's "cultural vibrancy" is helping to drive the economy.
