Default What if any surprises in the 2010 Census?

I am curious on predictions and surprises that may come about in the 2010 Census.

For example and these are illustrative:

Chicago and Milwaukee in a new combined CMSA
Mercer county added back to Philadelphia MSA
The Houston MSA surpasses the Dallas metro on population

anyway am curious as to everyone's predictions

Houston won't surpass Dallas. If Philly gets Mercer County added back, then it'll stay in front of Houston. If not, then Houston will jump over Philly and become the 5th largest MSA with over six million people.

I think people are going to be surprised in the rise of DFW's Asian and Latin population and the drop in their white population since 2000. I also think people are going to be surprised at the rise in Metro Atlanta's Asian community.

I think the white population will decline by a pretty good number. I'd say it's down to 70%.
The Hispanic percentage may come near 20% by now.
I think the black population will have a small rise, maybe 14%.
The Asian population has definitely climbed over 5%.

For my area, the Hispanic population has been on the rise, blacks have been moving to more affluent neighborhoods (I've met quite a few from NC and MD), I don't think the Asians (Koreans specifically) move around much (once they're here, they don't move), and white's are slowly leaving the area.

I'm hoping that Houston starts closing the gap between it and Dallas. But some surprises that I can see happening would be Philadelphia and Houston trading spots, I think another close fight is Atlanta (5,475,213) and DC (5,476,241), they're only about 1,000 residents away from each other.

I would like to see if Chicago can exceed the 10 million mark point.

But they're going to continue adding people who move in/out of cities until the end of 2010, and we'll be getting the results for the new census in June 2011.

I can hardly wait!

Dayton and Cincinnati becoming one metro area with a population over 3 million. As well as Cleveland/Akron/Canton with over 3 million.

It will be, Dallas is growing a lot faster than San Antonio. In the next year and a half, trust me when I say this, it WILL pass San Antonio by.

Their city population is VERY close, it's only a matter of a few years.

There is no way Dallas is growing faster than San Antonio. Dallas is a landlocked city, unlike San Antonio, and there really isn't that much open space left (save for the southern sides). San Antonio, on the other hand, pretty much dominates Bexar County. It isn't landlocked at all.
