Of course, we'd all rather be stylish than substantial these days.
I do love Pittsburg

There's a chance that Shelby County will become Tennessee's first county with 1,000,000+ population in 2020. The current rate of growth has it on pace for 993,260, so if its rate of growth increases slightly as the decade progresses, then the 1,000,000 mark will be easy to attain. Also noteworthy is that Shelby County accounts for the vast majority of numeric growth in the Memphis MSA.

Elsewhere, I feel bad for Ohio. Cincinnati and Columbus are the only MSAs in Ohio with both a year-over-year increase and an increase since 2010. Canton had a year-over-year increase, but has decreased since 2010. Dayton is the reverse, with a year-over-year decrease, but an increase since 2010. Every other MSA in Ohio has been steadily losing population, according to the estimates.

I noticed that, too. If it continues, it will be a really good sign for Memphis.

Regardless, Shelby is going to be first to cross that barrier just because it has such a big lead. Davidson might be closing the gap, but it's just too far back. Davidson is on pace to hit 734,000 by 2020. Shelby would have to simply stop growing for a couple of decades for Davidson to catch it.

For those interested in rural county population changes, look at the energy patch counties in North Dakota. Most have seen double digit increases in the last 2 years alone. These energy patch areas remain the fastest growing rural counties in the US with small metro military base counties seeing large percentage increases as well.

Tampa has been the second largest metro in Florida since the 1930s or something. That hasn't changed much. lol.

Tampa's growth rate is slowing down though. Prior to the recession Tampa was growing at 2% annually. Now, it is only growing at 1%. The warm weather will always be an magnet that will draw people here, but the economy SUCKS. I have been trying to get out of Tampa for years because there is just no hope of forming a fruitful career here. Ugh. I hate it so much.

A metro area of over 4 million people the economy sucks? What's so bad about it?

A fast growing metro area without a stable economy isn't good for Tampa!. Also the 2020 prediction with Nashville knocking on Cleveland door is unbelievable?

I thought Atlanta would be larger than Miami? I guess not.
