I'm trying to see what are the updated data for Urban Areas. The most recent I can find is for 2010.

The Census Bureau reviews and updates urbanized area and urban cluster boundaries every ten years, following the decennial census. Census blocks provide the "building blocks" for measuring population density and delineating each urban area. Because population estimates and American Community Survey data are not available at the census block-level, the Census Bureau does not possess a nationally consistent set of population data at the level of geographic detail needed to delineate urban areas between censuses.

Well, thank you. It looks like we'll have to wait for 5 more years.

It won't make much a difference though. Outside of a handful of cities, urban areas are the least fluid of the reporting areas for the Bureau. They only ever change by a few hundred square miles, even in rapidly growing cities.

I was more or less wondering for the actual population growth. But I see your point.

I've already assessed a few numbers; Charlotte and Raleigh. Did you see Raleigh and Durham separated? Concord is also separated from Charlotte but if you look at the map they are connected.
