I can't remember but I don't think Gwinnett was a core county decades ago.... it wasn't until like the 70s until it reached 100,000 people even.

Gwinnett has been a core County since the mid-late 60's, but the population in 1970 was only 72,349. By 1980 it was 166,903.

Now it's estimated to be an astounding 877,922. Just unbelievable.

There's a chance Gwinnett could hit a million by 2025, if not sooner. Wow.

It's unreal, and we won't have accurate numbers for a few years. We could be quite surprised in either direction, but it's obvious we are booming again.

Seems as if we are making up lost time as the last major Metro to recover from the recession lately.

Actually the county's in-migration has slowed to half annually of what it was in the 90s/early 2000s, but it's still good and of course births are really high.

An interesting point that Red John stipulates in his decade by decade population charts presentation here is that the populations found there are based on land area that is currently contained in the various metro areas.
As such, the half million plus 1900 population found in the 1900 chart for the Atlanta area is not really a statement that it was a metro area (as we would now recognize it) with 1/2 million residents at that point in time.
Most of what now constitutes our MSA/CSA back then was a bunch of largely rural counties that in no sense operated in a semi or closely-related sense with the rest of the region as they do now as signified by commuting patterns, etc.
So, Atlanta was truly tiny in 1900 with a city population of under 100,000 and not much else that could be defined as urban nearby.

And you have still not made a point...so...?

If you have a problem with my style. Oh hell, oh f**k well, then you'll deal and get over it... I don't like the duplicity and willfully obtuseness of a couple of individual posters on this sub-forum, but it is what it is. Hakuna matata

If Atlanta gets to a minimum of 90,000 people per year in growth (MSA wise) starting from the 2015 census estimates then it will take the 8th spot from Philadelphia by the 2020 census. If it does not get to 90,000 minimum it may take a year or two extra.

In 2006 the Philadelphia MSA was 4th in the United States; behind only New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, respectively in the same order. In 2007 it was noted that the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex had surpassed it, then in 2011 it was noted that Houston surpassed it, by now in 2015 Washington D.C. has already surpassed it (we'll officially get word in March next year; Washington D.C. was only behind by 17,000 people and in raw numbers is growing nearly 4.5 times more than Philadelphia annually), in 2017 Miami MSA will overtake it, and then finally three years later in 2020 Atlanta MSA will complete a 14 year process for Philadelphia MSA of going from 4th to 9th.

A place went from 4th to 9th in 14 years, literally well within my lifetime (I am 25) one of the country's top 5 premier cities fell out of favor in population ranks rapidly. In 2006 Philadelphia MSA also had the 4th largest GDP/economy in the United States too but it was surpassed by Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Washington D.C., and even by the much smaller San Francisco-Oakland in the years following 2006. Now the significantly smaller Boston MSA is also en-route to surpass the Philadelphia MSA GDP too.

Anyhow, this post isn't about Philadelphia, it is about Atlanta. Atlanta is moving up a spot, to 8th largest MSA and now the pressure is also on Atlanta to get to at least 8th largest MSA GDP and carry its weight too OR to surpass in GDP places it surpasses in population (Philadelphia MSA). That's how you move up the "importance" hierarchy and not just the population hierarchy.
