I've seen them list SF-Oak as a separate metro area than San Jose.

Charlotte loves to annex. As a matter of fact, much of its population gain from 1990 to 2000 was due to annexation. There are several cities that have annexed several thousands of people. This is why city proper statistics are useless.

The following is the amount of land Charlotte has annexed and the date it took place.

16.5 square miles 6/91
15.1 square miles 6/93
4.2 square miles 6/95
22.0 square miles 6/97
6.06 square miles 6/99
16.5 square miles 6/01
9.01 square miles 6/03
12.7 square miles 6/05
4.73 square miles 6/07

Commuting patterns determine metro areas.

I've seen San Jose as apart of San Franciscos metro, hence why the Metro is called the Bay area.

I honestly don't rely too much on the U.S Census when it comes to estimates for California's Population or when it comes to defining our Metro Areas and Boundaries

I prefer the Estimates and Definition from In-State Sources.

You guys are talking about two different things. There is the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland CSA, of which there are metropolitan subdivisions.

Correct.

There is a San Francisco-Oakland MSA. And then there is a San Jose MSA. Both together make up a CSA.

Like I said earlier, commuting patterns determine CSA's and MSA's. Apparently there are not enough people commuting to and from San Fran's MSA and San Jose's MSA.

Did anybody mention Omaha and Lincolns growth in the last year?
If not here it is:
Omaha grew by 5049 from 427,872, to 432,921.
Lincoln Grew by about 4,000 to 248,744 .

Omaha has since annexted another 10,600 people so, july 1st 2008 may show Omaha growing past 450,000 people..
