I know it's early, but where do y'all think population numbers will come in for the city of Atlanta and the metro counties?

Place your bets!

Nope, not even going to try to guess.

Atlanta 500,000+

Metro Atlanta ~7,000,000

Gwinnett County real close to 1,000,000

I'm predicting around 7.2 - 7.3 Million in the metro.

One thing I wonder is, what would have happened to Atlanta if somehow Lawrenceville became a concentrated smaller metro with an isolated skyline / large business district.

If the entire area that has a Lawrenceville address were to simply incorporate as the city of Lawrenceville, overnight it would have a population of at least 250,000. Maybe 300,000.

Similar deal with Marietta.

The metro would be almost like a tri-cities. Even though Atlanta would be the only one with an actual skyline.

But, that's not gonna happen. If Cobb and Gwinnett ever incorporate, I'm sure it would be new cities.

Metro Atlanta's estimated population in 2017 was 5.8 million. How in the world would it get to 7 million or more in 3 years without adding like 10 counties? The CSA was at 6.5 million in 2017, which includes Athens.

The city itself should be around 500,000, but we always seem to underestimate just how many people have emptied out of the rough areas.

I meant the CSA.

The MSA should be around 6 million.

No different than the other large edge cities around the north metro.
