Using the Census Bureau's latest Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) definitions, the newest numbers for the "Big 4" are:

Birmingham-Hoover, AL Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA)*
1,088,090

Huntsville Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA)
462,693

Mobile Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA)**
430,135

Montgomery Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA)
235,737


*note that the Birmingham MSA lost Walker County in the latest definitions. that sucks, because those definitions are only done ever 5 or 10 years as i understand it. so the numbers will look like the Birmingham area lost 60,000 people (when the reality is that that many people didn't simply pick up and leave, but people will just see the net loss and make assumptions). that might be enough to knock Birmingham out of the top 50 by 2020.

**also note that the Mobile MSA added Washington County

(FWIW, these are my own calculations... anybody want to double check me??)

I’m a bit shocked that Baldwin County is nearly as populated as Montgomery County.

I'm shocked that mobile and Baldwin are still separated. I know the rules. Pretty sure thatll change as brookley areoplex and the port of mobile continue to grow. At least we have Washington county now lol .

^ yeah, i wonder if in the next cycle we won't see baldwin county added back to mobile, and walker county added back to birmingham (i speculate this mainly because of the opening of i-22, which seems like it would encourage some commuting or growth in that direction).

Good point. Beats me. Maybe the widening of highway 5 would be encouraging also. Same with the i10 bridge. There is no industry in Baldwin co I mean 35000 ppl moved there but who's employing them( not saying all 35000 are employed in mobile) but it sure isn't owa lol idk maybe they're retirees and snowbirds.

I think Baldwin may be added again in a couple of years.The Easternshore is growing from Mobile's economy. Like you said there is no industry in Baldwin outside of tourism. The Beaches are growing from retirees. Spanish Fort - Daphne- Fairhope still feel like they are apart of Mobile's metro more so than Washington County.I mean they are basically suburbs of Mobile.I think Clark County Alabama is close to being added to the CSA.

Baldwin passed Shelby and Montgomery is next.That is crazy ! I think Shelby and Tuscaloosa both may pass Montgomery no later than 2025 unless things change and you never know. The stagnant or slow growth counties may start ticking. Progress don't happen over night.Over time the harvest from the work of these cities will show. At one time Mobile was a faster growing county than Baldwin back in the 80's and early 90's.Now they are the fastest growing county in the state. So you never know in the next 5-10years regarding Mobile,Jefferson and Montgomery.
