Census

Indianapolis falls to 13th in population among U.S. cities

May 24, 2013

Indianapolis has slipped one spot among the nation's most populous cities, to No. 13.

The U.S. Census Bureau says new population estimates show Indianapolis slipped from No. 12 during the census year that ended July 1, 2012.

The population of Indiana's state capital stood at just under 835,000 on that date. The city actually grew by about 8,000 people from the previous year, but other cities grew more. Austin, Texas, moved from 13th to 11th, pushing Jacksonville, Fla., and Indianapolis each down a spot.

The top three largest cities remain New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, in that order. New York City boasts a population of more than 8 million.
