WASHINGTON (AP) - New census estimates show most of the nation’s largest cities have further enhanced their allure — including several in Texas.

The new census estimates are a snapshot of population growth as of July 2012.

Texas has eight of the 15 fastest-growing cities with populations of 50,000 or more from 2011-2012.

New York remains the nation’s most populous city, at 8.3 million, with the rest of the top 10 unchanged. Austin, Texas, moved up from 13th to 11th.

Suburbs in the South and West are also seeing some gains, such as those around Houston, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Jacksonville, Fla.

Other big cities showing faster growth compared with the previous year include Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Phoenix, San Francisco and Columbus, Ohio.
