Mercer is already part of the NY CSA. Its not speculation.

If your trying to say that Burlington sends 15% to both Philadelphia and Trenton, that's easy.

Here's one easy solution. In the past the OMB has actually created county divisions. One divison would go to Philadelphia MSA and the other to the Trenton-Ewing MSA.

Easy.
Commuter data based on 2009 is what it means

No with Mercer now over 30% to the NY MSA it becomes a NYC MSA county. Burlington with Mercer a NYC MSA county now has 20% into the NYC MSA (Hence CSA connection), it only takes one county to create the connection and well over 30% of Burlington into the Philly MSA and remains a Philly MSA connection

As of 2009 Philly and NYC meet the census criteria for CSA combination

dont know thats true, but who cares!! doesnt make Philly any better, just 2nd fiddle.

Who cares about Mercer county anyway, they should be part of a Jersey metro, rather than NY and Philly jockeying to carve up the entire state of New Jersey....

Its 42 & 48 miles, and Ive been giving actual distances from downtown to downtown, not city limits or metro boundaries to someother outpost you want to include or feel slighted that NYC swallowed....

LOL, Philadelphia and Boston are part of the most powerful region in the world.

The Bay Area is surrounded by farms and the ocean.

Gee, which one shall I ever choose?!

San Francisco is faster-paced than any city in the Northeast that is not called New York City.
