Yeah I think its a fair list, it seems to jive with what ACS has updated. So yes. Although I think Philadelphia might be under counted here to be honest. It's population should be no less than 1.6 Million.

I think most cities might be under counted to be sure, because supposedly the California State Estimates are more accurate than the Federal Estimates and they already state that Los Angeles has reached above 4 Million, San Jose above 1 Million, & San Francisco above 850,000. So I don't know, but overall as far as the Federal Reports goes, this makes sense. And I'm glad to see Detroit still in the 900,000's.

Aren't there other 2009 estimates out there? I know Chicago's old 2009 estimate is actually lower than this one. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come

He posted cities and I posted Metropolitan Areas. Duhhhh!

EDIT: He must have edited his post to include Metropolitan Areas also when I was working on my post. Hmph, I still got Teal coloring in mine, therefore mine stands out more.

You won't get more accurate than the numbers coming out in several months. The state of California has the city San Jose over 1 million and the city of Los Angeles over 4 million.

Eh with Chicago it can go either way, gain or loss, honestly the place is way to unpredictable to even tell whats up and whats going on there.

Take a look at this for example.

Chicago City Population from 2000-2010:
Chicago in July, 2000: 2,895,671 (Initial start of the decade)
Chicago in July, 2001: 2,894,988 (Population loss from 2000)
Chicago in July, 2002: 2,881,295
Chicago in July, 2003: 2,866,361
Chicago in July, 2004: 2,848,996
Chicago in July, 2005: 2,824,584
Chicago in July, 2006: 2,806,391
Chicago in July, 2007: 2,811,035 (Population gain from 2006)
Chicago in July, 2008: 2,830,026
Chicago in July, 2009: 2,851,268
Chicago in November, 2010: 2,858,538 (Present Moment)

Source: http://www.bizjournals.com/buffalo/d...e=&CPIorderBy=

Eh, Chicago's always been one to surprise everyone. When you think its "growing" its really not, and when you think its "shrinking" its really not. I wouldn't be surprised if 30 years from now Chicago is still at the 2.8 Million to 3.0 Million mark even then. To me, its the poster child for Stagnation, just because it does it oh so often.

And whoa, looks like Dallas & San Diego just traded spots again (for the 100th time). They've been going back and forth for years now, one year it would be San Diego, the next Dallas, and the next San Diego, haha. I think this time Dallas is keeping the 8th spot, for real.
