Its hard to tell the whole story without those numbers.
MSA and conditional CSAs are both more relevant than city pops to me. City pops are okay on some levels but a lot of time, especially on this board, it is a way to make some cities feel more important or bigger on a national scale than they really are.

Indeed. If that were not the case, I would love to hear the argument about how Jacksonville is more important than Atlanta or that San Antonio is more important than Dallas.
