runners up:
11. Dallas- 1.25M
12. Charlotte 1.2M
13. San Jose 1.1M
14. Detroit 1.1M
15. Jacksonville 1M
16. Indianapolis 1M
17. El Paso 900K
18. San Francisco 800K
19. DC 700K
20. Memphis 700K
Another poster had an issue with Detroit, so I won't say anything about that. I will point out that you left out Columbus, which is currently the 15th largest city and is showing no signs of population decline. I would be surprised if Columbus didn't break 900K.

Thanks. I knew that I forgot one and couldn't for the life of me remember which it was.

After Indianapolis I drew a blank so I just stuck in EP, SF, DC and Memphis.
I would put in Columbus at 13 between Charlotte and SJ.

Detroit is coming back.

Who knows but what is the ratio of population in the Houston area if comparing
the city population to that of its greater metro area?
The city of Los Angeles only carries something like 23% of the population of the greater LA metro area.

city of Houston- 2.1M
Other cities in metro- 2M (yeah Houston doesn't have that many big neighbors)
Unincorporated Houston Jurisdiction - almost 2M

so a 33% to 33% to 33% split.

My top 10 would Be
1) New York 8.9 million
2) Los Angeles 4.7 Million
3) Houston- 3.4 Million
4) Chicago- 3.2 Million
5) Phoenix- 1.7 Million
6) Philly- 1.6 Million
7)San Antonio- 1.5 Million
8) San Deigo- 1.45 Million
9) Dallas- 1.3 Million
10) San Jose- 1.06 Million

* Jacksonville would be on SJ tail at 1.01 Million
Last 2 using Extrapulations cause of closeness.
Do you really think 800,000 people are going to be moving into the city of Chicago within the next 18 years?

Fort Wort should be passing it long before 2020. Maybe even this year.

Austin passed San Francisco last year I believe. But our laggard census has not caught up.

Austin should be neck and neck with Indianapolis, and only a few thousand behind Jacksonville, so it should be right there outside the top ten. Unless something drastic happens Both Austin and FW will be around the ten spot by 2010
