Their exists a relatively good possibility that Mercer county will flip back to the Philly Metro in 2020 census . That would bring back 350,000 people in the Philly Metro if that should happen than Philly will maintain it's 6th most populated Metro ranking . Beware of the black swan ..

I can see that for the 2020 census. But for 2030, even Mercer wouldn't hold off Miami, Atlanta, and DC.

* Both Washington D.C. and Miami/Fort Lauderdale have been there before. The 6th spot, historically speaking (literally) has largely been a revolving door over the decades.

Here is how it is year by year of the 2010s decade so far. Even just this decade, the 6th spot has had 3 different occupants (Houston (2010), Philadelphia (2011-2014), Washington D.C. (2015-Present)).

Atlanta and Houston between 2000 and 2010 is ridiculous growth, DC too. Based on this I would say DC and Atlanta will be duking it out

Staying with my initial response. Itís Miami or DC. Unless Atlanta has some super growth in the 2020s, I donít think it will outgrow Miami and DC by that much.
