OK I will believe you, I am just always skeptical of CSA data.

I tend to feel the same way for CSAs that revolve around one primary city. When there's more than one primary city in the picture, I think they have their place--especially if the CSA used to be a MSA, which is the case for the Triangle. The last revisions in 2003 split the area up.
