Apologies -- true, and true. Lee County is the CSA. The Columbus MSA added counties (now: Russell County, AL; Chattahoochee County, GA; Harris County, GA; Marion County, GA; Muscogee County, GA; Stewart County, GA; Talbot County, GA). Still, let's compare apples and oranges, not apples TO oranges. The gain is 11,000 to 12,000 residents since 2010.

Actually the gain is 23,000+ since 2010. The reason why Talbot and Stewart county were added is because of commute patterns. And they probably should have been added to the MSA a long time ago.

You simply added in the total population of the two new counties, which is not a "total gain" at all but a statistical error. You have to include Talbot's and Stewart's population gains/losses between 2010 and 2018. The US Census Bureau always factors all that in -- it compares the 2010 figure to 2018 as if the new counties always belonged. For the new 7-county Columbus MSA over the last 8 years:

Muscogee gained 3,587
Harris gained 2,477
Russell gained 4,834
Stewart gained 141
Talbot lost 602
Marion lost 387
Chattahoochee lost 583
Total gain for the MSA: 9,467

Also: the 2018 estimates just released by US Census still show the old definition of the Columbus MSA (5 counties -- a gain of 9,928), which means the new definition isn't "official" just yet. The chart will be revised soon and will show the 2010-2018 gains the way I have it. Either way (5 counties or 7), the gain for the total MSA is pretty much under 10,000.

Ok- I must've read that wrong. I don't know how y'all are getting these numbers, so I'll just shut up now...

I think a lot of people forget that. And that as someone stated, the Atlanta vacuum is real. The Columbia metro only gained about 14000 and is only at 866,000 in the metro, but that feels small and like it’s not enough to me. It’s all perspective.

Columbia has gained 65,000 people since the 2010 Census, not 14,000. Percentage growth in metro population, 2010-2018, is more revealing: Atlanta +12.55%, Columbia +8.5%, Columbus +3.6%.

I get it. First 6 letters are the exact same, but this is a thread about Columbus, not Columbia.

Okay, it’s a point of reference. I get it that I bring it up a lot. Don’t get butt hurt. Still the point was that everything is subjective, what feels little to you may be a lot to some people. I’ve apologized once for it and I guess I’ll do it again I guess, but that’s all I really know well city wise is Columbia. So I use it as a point of reference quite a bit. And the way some of you talk about Columbus on the forum, and treat some people not regularly a part of it, may turn away potential visitors. Remember that. I’ve visited several Georgia cities; Augusta, Vidalia, Waycross, Savannah, Brunswick, Atlanta. But I’ve yet to visit Columbus, and I’d love to one day so that I can stop referencing ColumbIA and start referencing ColumbUS.
