So how do you think your city/metro will fare and tell us about possible border changes. Please provide your estimate for the following:

City:
MSA:
CSA(If applicable):
I'd be uncomfortable venturing a guess. Sarasota city and county appear to be losing population at an accelerating rate; as well as the entire state of Florida, We'll just have to wait for the 2010 Census figures.

I'd guess Sarasota city loses 5,000 and the county at least...10,000. .

The State of California just released the latest population figures for the state of California for July 1, 2009.

The population for the eleven county Bay Area CSA is listed at 7,755,639. This is a one year increase from July 1, 2008, of 83,719.

Quite a healthy increase to say the least, even with all the economic turmoil going on.

No kidding! Especially in California which has probably received more press for the state of their economy than any other state with the exception of Michigan. Do you have a link to all the estimates, I'm sure everyone here would like to see estimates for other areas of the state.

Here goes the link. I hope it works, but this link will break down the estimates on the county level for July 1, 2009, and the population estimates for July 1, 2008, for comparison purposes.

I do however think we will break the 10 million mark for metro area.
If Chicago has 3.1 million people, then its because of the uncounted immigrants(mostly Hispanics) that weren't counted in 2000. I do think Chicago has 100,000-200,000 more people than what the census recorded.

Not to worry, the Census Bureau is giving a raw deal to areas east of the Rockies as well. Just in NC alone, Raleigh and Durham as well as Greensboro and Winston Salem were split into two MSAs. Though on a different scale, both of these "CSAs" have a similar valid argument like the Bay Area.

I wonder how MSAs will look after 2010. Will those areas you mentioned be joined back up? I wish there was a way to find out.
