By Ken Stanford Reporter
GAINESVILLE - The population of Gainesville increased by 720 in the year ending July 1, 2013, according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

According to population estimates released Thursday, Gainesville's population as of that date was 35,533. That compares to 34,813 a year earlier. At the time of the last census (official count), April 1, 2010, the population was 33,804. So, the estimated increase between April 1, 2010, and July 1, 2013, is 1,729.

Among other municipalities in Hall County, the Census Bureau estimates the population of Clermont at 906 (up from 898 on July 1, 2012); Flowery Branch, 6,145 (compared to 5,991); Gillsville, 245 (compared to 242); Lula, 2,847 (compared to 2,819); and Oakwood, 4,133 (compared to 4,085).

On the national level, the data show that Texas is home to three of the five fastest-growing cities in the country. (See separate story. Second link below.)
