INDIANAPOLIS -

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

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

The population of Indiana's state capital then stood at just under 835,000. The number of residents actually grew from 827,000 the previous year, but other cities grew more. Austin, Texas, moved up 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.
