I saw a guy in DC on metro who was wearing Ravens and Orioles gear at the same time. Then when I was in Baltimore city near Cross Street Market, i passed a bar that had all DC sports flags hanging outside and no B-more flags.

Not being a native of the area I said "is this not a sin???" But then I realized how much both metros really do mesh. Theyre distinct, but not LA and San Fran, 6-hours apart distinct.

I dont know many areas of Philly that would have only Yankees, Giants, Jets, Islanders, and Knicks signs hanging outside with blatnat disregard for the Eagles, Flyers, and Sixers.

I think Baton Rouge and New Orleans will inevitably become a CSA. I've always wanted it to happen from a economic and marketing standpoint. The two are separate metropolitan areas that includes the Hammond MSA on the northshore. Although they are separate MSAs, they function as one economic region. The MS river is what links the two together via the massive port system and plants along it. Majority of the population centers lie along the river and not I-10 like in other regions.

The Hammond MSA functions as more of an exurb of both cities more than it's own MSA. Every local and state official wants the region to become a CSA and market it as a region of 2.2 million people. Baton Rouge is sprawling to the south and to the east, both towards New Orleans so eventually the development along I-12 will be continuous and the development along I-10 will be more spotty as there are wetlands in between that cannot and shall not be developed for environmental reasons. The New Orleans CSA stretches into Picayune, MS and could possibly encompass all of Pearl River County and Hancock County. Baton Rouge could possibly add Wilkinson County, MS depending on how North Baton Rouge develops.
I see countless Mississippi plates in all three Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and Hammond and Pike County is a huge patron to medical services in Hammond.

Where are you guys finding commute numbers?

That's most certainly a cardinal sin. What bar did you see that?

You can find them here if you can figure out how to navigate the site.

Search the metro. Perform analysis on selected area. Select home or work area,destination(metropolitan) and primary or all jobs. Press go.

You have to do both home and work find the combined numbers.

Now, there could have been a bar specifically for DC fans, like there are places for Giants fans, Steelers, Yankees..Etc.

Baltimore and DC sports aren't meshed, no more than any other two cities in close proximity.

There will certainly be some CSAs that change (mostly addition of counties), but I am more interested to see if some current CSAs change to become a singular MSA with periphery counties making up the new CSA.

I do believe that the MSA commute threshold is 25%. I wonder which CSAs are near that point.

Possibly San Francisco-San Jose. The hard part is that they probably have some of the highest total numbers of commuters crossing county lines, but the counties are so large that 25% is a huge threshold. Santa Clara County (the Silicon Valley) has 1.9 million people, and a workforce of about 1.1 million. For it to become a MSA, there have to be 275,000 people commuting in daily from the San Francisco/Oakland MSA, which is a lot of people.
