I think that fast growing MSAs that don't currently have a CSA are the most likely to gain new CSA status. A MSA like Austin is a perfect example. As the MSA grows, it's going to eventually activate edge development in some adjacent counties that could become part of the metro through the CSA designation.

All this talk about combining existing MSAs and CSAs to create massive new CSAs seem like a really unlikely scenario at this point.

I absolutely expect that some existing CSAs and MSAs will change but I don't see them as being fundamentally revolutionary, rather evolutionary.

The urbanized areas and urban clusters used in these delineations will be those based on 2010 Census data or subsequent special censuses for which urban areas are created. The central counties of CBSAs identified on the basis of a 2010 Census population count, or on the basis of population estimates from the Census Bureauís Population Estimates Program or a special census count in the case of postcensally delineated areas, will constitute the central counties for purposes of the these area delineations. New CBSAs will be designated in 2018 on the basis of Census Bureau special census counts or population estimates as described above in Sections 10(b) and 10(c); outlying county qualification will be based on 5-year commuting estimates from the American Community Survey."
Interesting the OMB is doing a mid-cycle update to the CBSA delineations. I wonder if they will finally undo the split of the Raleigh and Durham MSAs back into one MSA instead of two MSAs in the same CSA.
