Folks consider the entire metro area with its 8.3 million people. Talk about Atlanta and people who have spent any time there think of the thick traffic. But you don't get thick traffic like that with 500 something thousand people. You are exactly right, it's stupid to separate areas that are that close. That's why people usually consider the metro area moreso than an arbitrary city proper boundary and population.
Actually, the New York City/Northern New Jersey/Long Island CSA encompasses four states and is roughly 19,000,000 people (I think). Your 8,300,000 figure represents only the city proper population of New York City. I bet most people don't realize that Brooklyn is actually more populous than Manhattan, but it is. I bet many people also don't realize that Manhattan is smaller in population than Philadelphia. Some CSAs sprawl much further than others. For example, Pike County, PA is now included in this CSA, and nearby Monroe County (I would assume) will soon be added as well due to the heavy commuting patterns between these two NEPA counties and NYC. Even Scranton/Wilkes-Barre is now being dubbed a "satellite city" of NYC, and we are two hours away.

In any event I concur that while there is a distinct difference between city and metro populations, to get the true "feel" of a city you should abide by the metro stats. Atlanta certainly "feels" like a city of 5,000,000+ more so than a city of 500,000+. It's not Atlanta's fault that a lot of people think the city sucks and chose to move to the sprawling suburbs for some God-awful reason.

Please show me the link where it says their population as of 2009, 2008. or even 2007. North Augusta and Aiken have more people than that. Even though SC has strict annexation laws.

This might be a hot growth area but its not a hot growth area like North Augusta. Or W. Robins would be apart of Macon's MSA which its not. Augusta suburbs are more built up than Macon, Savannah, and Columbus suburbs.

Marietta is already an incorporated city and has been since 1834, but much of East Cobb (which claims a Marietta mailing address) is not.

This is a very hot growth area, one the fastest growth areas in Macon/bibb county and north North Houston co..... There was a Several articles in The Magazine "Georgia Trend" about this growth boom in South Bibb and North Houston co. There is $500 million mixed-use development in south Bibb County with over 2 million sq ft underway, several mixed used residential projects, several new schools has been developed and highway upgrades and widens to adapt to high volume of traffic. North Macon/bibb and South Monroe is experiencing Even larger boom, with over 5million sq ft of mixed used retail, Several commercial and residential projects and etc. Monroe Co. is having a big disputes with Bibb county about county lines which runs smack dab in the middle of all this development.

the link for population is US Census......

Columbusattorney needs to give it up. I spent some time reading your posts. Your posts make no sense and lack evidence. You are not very credible from what I have read.

I think you have a certain amount of spillover for every incorporated city in Cobb County. I lived in unincorporated Cobb 30080 with a Smyrna address for a while, for example. Marietta is one of the biggies, though.
