AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- A new estimate shows Auburn is among the fastest growing in the country.
The estimate released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau shows Auburn was among the top 15 fastest-growing cities with populations of at least 50,000 people.
AL.com reports the city had an estimated population growth rate of 3.71 percent during the one-year period starting July 1, 2011.
Eight Texas cities made the ranking of 15 with San Marcos, located between San Antonio and Austin, topping the list with a 4.91 percent increase.
