Census: Georgetown again seventh fastest-growing city in U.S.

May 21, 2020

Today the U.S. Census Bureau released population estimates showing that Georgetown is ranked seventh on the list of fastest-growing cities in the country with a population of more than 50,000. Georgetown’s growth rate was 7.2 percent from July 1, 2018, through July 1, 2019, resulting in a population estimate of 79,604.

“People continue to choose to call Georgetown home, because they see what we do: Georgetown has it all,” Mayor Dale Ross said. “We are a safe community, with unparalleled parks, an award-winning library, a low tax rate, and the Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas. With dedicated partners like Southwestern University, Georgetown ISD, Williamson County, St. David’s Georgetown Hospital, the Chamber, and Sun City, working to maintain Georgetown’s charm and character, people will keep moving here and building upon what we have.”

Georgetown was the seventh fastest-growing city in the U.S. on the list released last year by the Census. In 2018, Georgetown was the sixth fastest-growing city in the U.S., fifth in 2017, the fastest in 2016, and the second fastest in 2015.

Georgetown’s population was 47,400 in the 2010 census. According to today’s estimate, Georgetown added 32,204 residents with a growth rate of 67.94 percent from 2010 to 2019.

“This sustained growth helps the City maintain one of the lowest tax rates in the region and helps us fund the infrastructure and other services needed to keep up with that growth,” Ross added.
