I actually did some research on the US Census website a couple of months ago and posted information about the metros on another forum. I'll copy and paste that information here.

Heres some information from the 2006 census estimates taken from the official us census site about the current population of the georgia second tier metros.
http://www.census.gov/population/www/estim...006-annual.html (http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/ipb_seo.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.census.gov%2Fpopu lation%2Fwww%2Festimates%2FCBSA-est2006-annual.html - broken link)


1. Augusta 523,249
2. Savannah 320,013
3. Columbus 288,847
4. Macon 229,326
5. Athens 185,479
6. Albany 163,961
7. Warner Robins 127,530
* Auburn-Opelika (Alabama) 125,781 (I included this because in 2010 this metro will most likely merge with Columbus)

As of right now Macon and Warner Robins are seperate but will most likely merge when the MSA's are redefined in 2010.

Here's the ranking in growth between 2005 and 2006. This will indicate which metros added the most population in 2006.

1. Savannah 6,557
2. Columbus 6,352
3. Augusta 5,394
4. Athens 3,015
5. Auburn-Opelika 2,659
6. Warner Robins 1,954
7. Macon 1,357
8. Albany 1,156
