. It does and it doesn't nevertheless there is no way to ignore New Jersey as the distance between Manhattan and Jersey City is close to that between Brooklyn and Manhattan. There is NY/NJ Port Authority and PATH is taking commuters to New York every day. NJ it's not a part of NYC but it is part of its MSA, no doubt about it.

I don't see what is confusing about it.

The city estimate sounds about right. The state of California found 4,065,586 people within the city of Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Metropolitan Statistical Area includes just L.A. and Orange Counties. The state of California says the MSA will have 13,352,202 people.

The CSA for Los Angeles includes Ventura, San Bernardino, and Riverside Counties. With these, the state of California has the CSA at 18,536,885 people.

It will be interesting to see if the U.S. Census is signifigantly different from the state's findings.

City: 4,050,000
Metro: L.A is a confusing one. Urban L.A has around 12 million+ residents while "Metro" L.A has over 17 million. Going by Urban L.A, I'll say 13,200,000.

Add any others you think should be here
Ha ! Are there anymore cities than that . Oh, this post is gonna be LONG.

Second point is that Philly's POPULATION IS LOWER THAN I EVER WOULD EXPECT!!! It's got to be around 1,514,000 .

So, my list for 2010's largest cities should be like this:

New York City 8,533,000
Los Angeles 4,219,000
Chicago 2,924,000
Houston 2,429,000
Phoenix 1,613,000
Philadelphia 1,514,000
San Antonio 1,446,000
San Diego 1,407,000
Dallas 1,367,000
San Jose 1,058,000

The states look very promising. California gains one, while Texas ups 4 electrical votes.

California 39,913,000
Texas 25,787,000
New York 19,131,000
Florida 17,892,000

The 20 metros should look like this, eh? (MSA's or CSA's, I don't care )

New York City 19,143,000
Los Angeles 18,193,000 (Los Angeles-San Diego: 23,013,000)
Chicago 9,677,000
Dallas-Ft. Worth 6,512,000
Philadelphia 6,016,000
Houston 5,892,000
Washington 5,498,000
Atlanta 5,497,000
Boston 4,562,000
Detoit 4,384,000
Phoenix 4,384,000
San Francisco 4,321,000
Riverside-San Bernardino 4,168,000
Seattle-Tacoma 3,414,000
Minneapolis 3,286,000
San Diego 3,233,000
St. Louis 2,819,000
Tampa 2,750,000
Baltimore 2,702,000

Washington, DC just has to be at 595,000 population, with the whole country at around 313,237,000.

The 5 largest counties:
Los Angeles 10,329,000
Cook 5,133,000
Harris 4,089,000
Maricopa 4,029,000
San Diego 3,233,000

Haha as of Wednesday of this week, Houston already passed Philadelphia Metro up for the number 5 spot in population. Greater Houston area is over 6 million and 22,000 ahead of Philadelphia area.

Buffalo hangs on to 50th place - Business First of Buffalo

you can't do this. If you do, you might as well combine New York with Philadelphia.

Hate on Philadelphia? Say what?!?!

1. I'm originally from Chicago... still am a resident of Chicago, even though I do spend more time living in Houston, so no I'm not exactly a full Sunbelt poster.
2. I didn't do anything to "hate" on Philadelphia. There have been countless times that I've defended Philadelphia before in the past, it's a very respectable city.

I'm not hating on it at all, I'm just saying it like it is. Philadelphia is the 6th largest metropolitan area, what's wrong with that? It doesn't make it any less relevant.

I thinks it's the way some people are happy Houston passed Philly. It's like a joyous occasion or something..
