Default 2009 population estimates Detroit at 821,792

Of course it's just estimates, but I would not doubt these numbers. Of the 100 biggest cities in the United States, Detroit is the fastest shrinking, and it looks like Jacksonville, FL has taken the #11 spot, bumping Detroit down to #12.

1. New York - 8.2 Million
2. Los Angeles - 3.8 Million
3. Chicago - 2.8 Million
4. Houston - 2.2 Million
5. Phoenix - 1.6 Million
6. Philadelphia - 1.4 Million
7. San Antonio - 1.3 Million
8. Dallas - 1.2 Million
9. San Diego - 1.2 Million
10. San Jose - 955,905
11. Jacksonville - 822,629
12. Detroit - 821,792
13. Indianapolis - 792,238

It's amazing how this list has changed drastically, even in the last 10-20 years.

I doubt it is that high. I would not be surprised if does not hit 750,000.

Jacksonville, FL's numbers can be misleading as Jacksonville and Duval County combined their city-county gov't to where everyone in the county not living in the suburbs is counted as Jacksonville.

Well.....ignoring international borders.....including in Essex County, Ontario (City of Windsor) Detroit Metro would be 5.7 million.....making it 9th. Moreover, if you take the total land area that makes up many of the Southern Metro figures and superimpose that over Southestern Michigan/Northwestrn Ohio, Metro Detroit would have over 6 million people. That said....the trend for the next decade....at the most.....makes the point moot because these Southern metros will keep adding people while Detroit area loses/stagnates. However, in the 20 year window, that will reverse and water problems cripple Southern and Western population growth.

Default What are these figures?

They aren't SMSAs, are they? I thought that was the standard of measurement of metropolitan areas.

Including Flint in Detroit's population? And Riverside in LA's? Those are distinct cities, about 60 miles away from the larger city.

Why is Huntsville lumped in with Houston? Huntsville is a speed bump between Houston and Dallas.
