Shouldn't Nashville be ahead of Sacramento?

Good point. I got them off Wikipedia, which sources them from the Census Bureau

Just for the record...

Despite the fact it would be most logical to have ALL metro areas listed in some Combined Statistical Area the Census Bureau omits several cities.

I noticed these missing from the CSA map:
* Miami
* Tampa
* Richmond
* Memphis
* Austin
* San Antonio
* Phoenix
* Tucson
* Albuquerque

Yeah, I don't think any of those cities have CSAs, only MSAs. I know it's like that for Charleston, SC also.

I followed the link, and it's quite a bit different than this list. Is this list in order of gross population growth? It doesn't seem to be in order of percentage growth, especially with the cities/regions left out.
How did you extrapolate your list from the census figures?

The biggest news here is that Detroit managed positive growth.
