I think that you'll find there's no such thing as a 2008 census. It's taken every ten years, and the next one will be in 2010. Don't expect too much variation in the top ten!

The Census is conducted once every 10 years. Come back in 2011 when we get the results in from the 2010 Census. In the interim, the Census Bureau produces estimates. You can check them out on their website, but like all estimates, they're educated guesses, not counts. Population Estimates Data Sets (http://www.census.gov/popest/datasets.html - broken link)

Omaha is now the #1 largest city. Pretty much the rest of the numbers are the same.

The census bureau gathers additional interim data, and releases annual estimates of current population.

When asking this question, it important to specify whether you mean the city proper. or the mtreopolitan area.

No, pretty sure it's still #4, even if you count MSAs.
