WOW! Houston also feels bigger than the other two because it sprawls more and is more spreaded out? Just curious.

LOL! I don't swim! I've been looking at pictures all day of Houston and the metro, and Houston seems 2x larger than its population. It seems way bigger than Atlanta.

One interesting factor for the future is that Houston's metro area isn't that close to any other large metro areas. Nor is that of Dallas-Ft. Worth. But San Antonio and Austin may eventually merge into the same CSA.

The Census merging Boston with Providence, for instance, catapulted it ahead of Houston's CSA. Houston's CSA is currently #9 and Dallas-Ft. Worth is #7 (with Philadelphia's CSA between them), but of course, it'll be interesting to finally see the Census numbers over the next few months instead of basing this all on estimations.

well for one, Dallas and FW were too separate metros that were joined together and catapulted it ahead of Houston.

was previously the FW-Arlington metro and the Dallas-Plano Irving metro until they ran smack into each other.


SA and Austin I can see as one CSA in the future.


I see Houston combining with Beaumont-port arthur, College Station- Bryan and Victoria msa's in the future, but that does not add much

EDIT: well I just looked it up and it adds over 700K people, more than enough to catapult it ahead of Philly and tie it with DFW
