Objective

Identify CD's most popular American metropolitan area of 2019 through a knockout-tournament-style voting system.

Methods
  • Identify the 64 most populous metro areas in the USA
  • Subjectively assign each metro area to one of four geographic regions (East, South, Midwest, and West)
  • Seed each metro area within each region from 1 to 16 (based on current population) and create a tournament bracket similar to what the NCAA uses for its annual men's and women's basketball tournaments
  • Complete a round-by-round vote until a winner is decided!

WEST REGION

1) Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA MSA
vs
16) Bakersfield, CA MSA

8) Sacramento–Roseville–Arden-Arcade, CA MSA
vs
9) Las Vegas-Henderson-Paradise, NV MSA

4) Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario, CA MSA
vs
13) Fresno, CA MSA

5) Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, WA MSA
vs
12) Tucson, AZ MSA

3) San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, CA MSA
vs
14) Urban Honolulu, HI MSA

6) San Diego-Carlsbad, CA MSA
vs
11) Salt Lake City, UT MSA

7) Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro, OR-WA MSA
vs
10) San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, CA MSA

2) Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ MSA

Riverside as a #4 seed??? This is obviously solely raw population based.

They were unlucky enough to draw San Francisco instead of Riverside

Shoots. It looks like it’s time to make some yahoo email and city data accounts to give Honolulu what it needs to win, lol.

Poor Bakersfield indeed. I voted for it. Very nice [smallish] city. I don't care for L.A. at all.
