Orlando Now Ranked As State’s 4th Largest City

ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) – St. Petersburg has been knocked from its spot as the state’s fourth largest city by Orlando.

Orlando now has over 255,000 residents, compared to St. Petersburg’s 249,000, according to the Census Bureau.

Orlando has a higher birthrate than St. Petersburg and has more room for expansion because it is not surrounded by water. St. Petersburg’s residents are also older on average, meaning the city has a higher death rate.

Jacksonville is the state’s most populous city, followed by Miami and Tampa.
