I bet Clarkston is way up there in terms of international migration.

Yes it would. Charlotte + the Triangle + the Triad equals about 5.5 million, which is Atlanta's metro population. The GDP of all three combined is around $313 billion, not too far from Atlanta's $307 billion. But yes, Atlanta is like a city-state in a way that none of those three metros individually are and it takes all three combined to match Atlanta in terms of population and wealth.

Afonega said "fit almost 3" and it "still would not add up."

Which didn't make much sense since NC doesn't have "almost 3" major metro regions; it has three solid ones. So either the comparison is to all three or it's not.

You are lumping NC CSA's together. Triangle and Triad are CSA's. Remember that Atlanta has a CSA that was 6.2 million in mid-2013. Might be almost 6.5 million now. The $307 billion figure is also last years. It's going to come in at least at $321 billion this year (which may or may not be equal to or less than NC's 3 major metros). So no, truthfully the NC MSA's and CSA's combined still do not equal one Atlanta.

Not to be overly nit-picky but I am a confessed data nut.

There must be something special about those sweet Georgia peaches because according to the 2014 Allied Van Lines Magnet States Report, Georgia ranked as the No. 10 most inbound state.
According to the report, Georgia had 2,466 inbound moves and a net relocation gain (calculated by the difference between inbound moves and outbound moves performed by Allied Van Lines) of 335 families in 2014

If you know anything about the Triad and Triangle, you'd know they operate as singular multinodal metro regions (especially the Triangle) which is why they used to be classified as singular MSAs. And by "three of the largest metros," I took that to mean Charlotte, the Triangle, and the Triad and not Charlotte, Raleigh, and Greensboro because it's plainly obvious that Atlanta is larger than the latter grouping. Also I didn't use CSA figures because GDP isn't calculated by CSA but by MSA, so I used the population figures of the constituent MSAs of the Triangle and Triad to calculate the figures given. So inasmuch as an apples-to-apples comparison can be made with respect to the available data, my point stands. Charlotte + Triangle + Triad = Atlanta.

Actually although I left it ambiguous, Idid think for on N.C. of Charlotte,Raleigh, and Greensboro were exactly the cities that came to mind.
When looking up these cities in national publication s this is how they are mentioned
