LOL,,,,,,,,Good for you.

You notice that 'jdawson' did not respond to this thread today. The only one. This must be his weakest subject. (I'm still a little curious how the expansion of the CSA is displeasing him)

For 2015 the CSA expands again to include Alexander City Micropolitan area and Tallapoosa county.

MSA remains the same with 7 core counties: Bibb, Blount, Chilton, Jefferson, St. Clair, Shelby, and Walker.

CSA adds Cullman, Talladega, Coosa and now Tallapoosa counties.

This info comes from Office of Budget and Management. It is a little more intuitive. The census websites' interfaces are pretty bad. As well, there are so many years listed it is hard to find the right compilation.


You are not alone.

Well, in defense of the Census Bureau ... there is a CRAPLOAD of information available on that site, pretty much anything and everthing you could possibly want to know about anyplace in the United States, from the all 50 states level right down to individual census blocks. So it's understandable to a degree why it's hard to navigate. I've still never figured out their interactive maps feature, which is quite buggy and tends to behavve on its own.

The easiest way to get basic info is to click on the QUICK STATS feature, where you click on a state, then county or city and up pops the basics. Getting beyond that can be tricky sometimes, but it is doable with practice.

I can't take any credit. This is the first time I've ever been able to find something useful that I was looking for regarding this. Navigating through their site is usually like me solving a broken Rubik's cube while blindfolded, inebriated and inside a dryer.

With the Birmingham CSA branching out eastward, maybe the Charlantingham idea is not so far-fetched (sarcasm here). Google "Charlantingham" if you don't know what I mean.
