^ Thanks for pointing that out. They did that with NYC (i.e. Brooklyn) and I had consolidated them. I didn't think to look for others because NYC is usually the only place in the US that most publications will do that for.

My first glance at the metro areas and I want to say that DC area may have the most.

1. New York, NY | 183 companies
2. Chicago, IL | 93 companies
3. Austin, TX | 90 companies
4. Houston, TX | 77 companies
5. San Francisco, CA | 77 companies
6. Atlanta, GA | 75 companies
7. San Diego, CA | 71 companies
8. Seattle, WA | 53 companies
9. Boston, MA | 43 companies
10. Dallas, TX | 43 companies
11. Irvine, CA | 43 companies
12. Denver, CO | 42 companies
13. Los Angeles, CA | 42 companies
14. Washington, DC | 42 companies
15. Charlotte, NC | 38 companies
16. Alpharetta, GA | 36 companies
17. Scottsdale, AZ | 34 companies
18. Reston, VA | 33 companies
19. Tampa, FL | 33 companies
20. Salt Lake City, UT | 30 companies
21. Indianapolis, IN | 29 companies
22. Portland, OR | 28 companies
23. Cincinnati, OH | 26 companies
24. Phoenix, AZ | 25 companies
25. Plano, TX | 25 companies



For comparison's sake, this is how 2012 looked:
1. New York, NY | 163 companies
2. Chicago, IL | 88 companies
3. Austin, TX | 82 companies
4. Atlanta, GA | 81 companies
5. Houston, TX | 77 companies
6. San Francisco, CA | 71 companies
7. San Diego, CA | 63 companies
8. Dallas, TX | 51 companies
9. Seattle, WA | 51 companies
10. Denver, CO | 49 companies
11. Boston, MA | 48 companies
12. Washington, DC | 47 companies
13. Los Angeles, CA | 40 companies
14. Irvine, CA | 39 companies
15. Tampa, FL | 38 companies
16. Charlotte, NC | 30 companies
17. Reston, VA | 30 companies
18. Scottsdale, AZ | 30 companies
19. Alpharetta, GA | 29 companies
20. Indianapolis, IN | 28 companies
21. Louisville, KY | 28 companies
22. Cincinnati, OH | 25 companies
23. Fairfax, VA | 25 companies
24. Phoenix, AZ | 25 companies
25. Arlington, VA | 24 companies


Wonder why they didn't do this by metro area. Especially since cities across America have such large differences in area. You can fit D.C, Boston, and San Fran 2-3 and even 5-6 times in many of these cities. Seems like it would have been more of an apples to apples comparison.

I counted 315 for the D.C. area. I may have missed a few. Way more for the CSA area with places around 15-20 mile's from D.C. in Howard County like Columbia MD with 15 and places in Anne Arundel County being in Baltimore's MSA.

One thing is for sure. The VA suburbs of D.C. are a monster. The VA suburbs of D.C. have 208 companies on the list. In comparison, the entire state of Georgia has 212 on the list.

Because most people don't care about what MSA something is in - they care about what city it's in. I am also the person who created a program to go through all 50 pages of data and collect, and add up the data. So there's nothing on their site that tells you the data from page 1 - that's stuff I did. I'm working on the MSA part but it's a lot of data collection. I can only find files that relate city to Urban Area, but even then it's nowhere even close to perfect.

I agree. I counted about 136 for DFW.
