The Austin Business Journal looked at 2040 population projections for the biggest cities in Texas and found that Austin-Round Rock, which is currently ranked the fourth biggest city in Texas by population, will be the 3rd largest by 2040.

The population of Austin-Round Rock in 2015 was 2,000,860 and the population in 2040 is projected to be 3,971,820, which is a 98.5% change.  Austin will be beat by Houston, which will move from number two to the top spot, and Dallas-Fort Worth, which will drop from Number 1 to number two according to the forecasts.

The forecast for Austin’s meteoric increase in population makes it the fastest growth of any large city in the country.
