Great work first of all. I'd only point out, it just looks like a typo, but you excluded Atlanta should be #2 then Chicago then Washington. One thing i'm noticing also is that probably by 2020 Census, Washington should jump Chicago in Black population by MSA to be #3 as it's Black population is still growing and Chicago's is decreasing. As of most recent numbers DC trailed by only 9,000.

As of most recent numbers DC trailed by only 9,000.
Definitely a typo, thank you!

Oakland is included in the San Francisco MSA. I have another thread with black growth in the core cities that highlights Oakland!

One thing that continues to validate a thought I shared several years back, which is that Raleigh and Charlotte are more similar than opposite, is how close they mirror each other demographically. Demographically and physically, they are the same city, pretty much; my opinion hasn't changed. They may be the two most similar "Top 2" cities anywhere in the country...

The separation is economically, which lends to different "spirits" between the two. But that's the only significant difference between the two...

Never thought of it before, but Knoxville and Pittsburgh are demographic twins damn near, and when I really think about it, having been to both it is an easy comparison to make, absolutely...

Also, forgot to mention, source for data is ACS 2017 estimates...

It seems hard to find a racially balanced metro, one where 60% are white, 18% Latino, 13% black and 6% Asian.

I think that's because places & people can't be set up to reflect the nationwide percantages. That irks me alot ever since I've been lurking on citydata forum. People already understand the dynamics of collective lifestyles along with the flow of in/out migration, growth/decline, and economics. So i can't understand the curiosity of coming across a metro or city that reflects the whole country demographics.

An ethnically ( disagree with racial terminology) " balance" metro/city would be equal portions of all major groups in my opinion.
