ORLANDO, Fla. -

Orlando now has more people than St. Petersburg, making it Florida's fourth largest city.  

The Census Bureau says Orlando now has over 255,000 residents, compared to St. Petersburg's 249,000.  

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.
