Columbus side of lee county isn't included. Augusta south carolina side of their metro isn't included. Macon and warner robins are seperate. And savannah is seperate from ft. sewart-hinesville. All it would do is make the numbers higher for each city. But still be in the same exact order.

When it comes to economic importance in the state of georgia. Its in this order Atlanta, Augusta, Savannah, Columbus, Macon

This list can't be correct because i'm sure Warner RObins ranks higher than it does, especially with Georgia's Largest Employer & Industrial Complex (Warner RObins Air Force Base). PLus the total population at the bottom reads 7.38 million and we know that is not true, cause the Atlanta metro had 4 million people move there in 5 years. Could we see some web sources, or something, better yet an updated economic sheet. Cuase this list may be accurate as of 1995.

Looks like that list was based off the 2000 Census

Completely untrue. Columbus is in the best position ever. You apparently haven't kept up with what is going on.

It certainly has!!The household income has declined from the inflation-adjusted 2000 income levels. The income level has decreased to $33,453, which amounts to a 17.2 percent decline. The Columbus, GA-AL MSA, when comparing total percent of decline, ranks 4 of 6 metro area in percent of decline for median household income in the State of Georgia. Columbus ranks 15 of 233 metro area when comparing the decline in median income level for the United States.When compared to other Metro Areas throughout the United States, the Columbus metro area had a relatively low median household income of $40,379 (2005 Dollars). The income level is 23 percent lower than the median in State of Georgia of $49,647 and the median is 21.7 percent lower than the median household income level in the US of $49,133.As the median income level saw a decline from 2000 to 2005 in the Columbus, GA-AL metro area, the Race/Ethnicity category that saw the sharpest decline in median household income was the Hispanic category. This group felt a decline of 43.3 percent from 2000 to 2005. The American Indian and Alaska Native Race/Ethnicity category has been least effected by the income level decline in Columbus, undergoing a 2 percent increase in household income, since the reported levels in 2000.Evaluated with other MSAs across the nation, the Columbus metro area can be considered to have a relatively high rate of poverty among its population, accounting a rate of 15.6 percent with a family income under the 1999 poverty level. The Black or African American race/ethnicity population category, holds the highest rate of poverty with 24.6 percent of the people in 2000 living in poverty. The population that is aged Under 5 years have the most percent of people living in poverty in Columbus, having 24 percent of the population in this age category living in poverty.The poverty rate in the Columbus, GA-AL Metro has increased by 3.8 percent since the amount published in 2000, moving from 15.6 percent to 19.4 percent.Datasource: U.S. Bureau of the Census.Read more: Georgia's largest cities as of 2008..interesting!

Exactly my point. Check out the article on Columbus in The Economist, it says it all. Thanks for the support Hot_Mike.

Things have changed dramatically since BRAC announcment according to local chamber findings.....Cessna full shutdown expected in August and only 69 people hired at NCR according to DOL with unemployment increasing locally last month.Community Concerns: The Columbus, GA, and Fort Benning community welcomed the relocation of the Armor Center and School, and indicated full support for this portion of DoDís recommendation. However, the Fort Benning community was concerned that an additional brigade combat team (BCT), previously planned for Fort Benning, is instead now identified in this recommendation for stationing at Fort Knox. The Fort Benning community felt the Army ought to station additional units at Fort Benning to more fully use its available capacity.There were no formal expressions from the community regarding the closure of the United States Army Reserve Center, Columbus, GA, and relocation and consolidation of those units together with Army Reserve Units currently on Fort Benning into a new United States Army Reserve Center on Fort Benning, GA.There were no formal expressions from the community regarding the consolidation of the Drill Sergeant's Training School from three locations (Fort Benning, Fort Jackson, and Fort Leonard Wood) to one location (Fort Jackson).Commission Findings: Although the Fort Benning community was concerned that the Army BRAC proposal revised a pre-BRAC plan to activate a brigade at Fort Benning but did not identify substitute units to be based at Fort Benning, the Commission found that the Army does not currently plan to add major units to Fort Benning as part of BRAC but may do so outside of BRAC. Both the Fort Benning and Fort Knox communities requested clarification from the Army about which specific units would relocate under BRAC from Fort Knox to Fort Benning, and the Commission obtained the needed Army clarification. Last, the Fort Knox community expressed concern that the Armor Center and School functions might not be readily accommodated at Fort Benning, but the Commission found the Army would implement the transfer only as the moves are fully supportable and that Armor student training will not be degraded by BRAC moves. The Commission found that Army BRAC plans relocate the museum portion on the Armor school manning document, and remaining museum issue resolutions can be addressed during implementation.Regarding the last of the recommendations, the Commission found no reason to disagree with the recommendation of the Secretary of Defense. In addition, the Commission notes that the Armyís process was well thought-out and inclusive of the leadership of the Reserve Components and the State.The Commission found DoDís proposal to consolidate drill sergeant training at one site to be consistent with the final selection criteria and the Force Structure Plan. Fort Jackson has adequate facilities for consolidation of all three existing drill sergeant schools when augmented with proposed construction. Savings occur rapidly, reflecting the efficiencies of collocation. The Commission views the consolidation as desirable so long as the ability to foster consistency and proficiency in this critical Army asset is not affected during implementation
