If most people don't care about their city's metropolitan area population, they care less about their CSA. In fact, with the exception of a few cases like Raleigh-Durham, CSAs usually consist of a multiple metro areas that to most people are separate entities or they include rural areas that have little association with the core city and most people think of them that way. I personally detest the CSA measuring population because it's fairly meaningless outside of the few exceptions.
Most Americans have no clue what the population of their city, or metropolitan area, let alone their "CSA" (or would have a clue what that even means) is.

I'd be shocked if a lot of Americans knew where their particular city limits begin and end.

Almost everything discussed on this forum.. But I don't see what the problem with that is, other than when these things are used as some sort of bragging right (which unfortunately is quite often). Nothing inherently wrong with discussing different aspects of cities on a forum about cities though, despite how juvenile the discussions often become. We all knew what we signed up for when becoming 'members' of this 'community'.

skyline is first and foremost. I don't know anyone irl who cares about their city's skyline.

Density to me seems to be a crude proxy for walkability. And ofc, walkability is something people irl care about especially the younger crowd.

Traffic. We all hate it, but we can't do anything about it...

But most people just ask about walkability. You don't see too many ads that say "Great neighborhood! Everything's within footsteps! Located in a census tract with a density of 97,556 people per square mile!"

Outside of C-D, most people don't know what to make of population density. If you told most people the population density of their neighborhood, they'd probably just say "Wow" or "Is that good?"
