Title is pretty much self explanitory. I'd like to see what people think the census estimations for the following cities and metro areas are going to be come April 1, 2010. Feel free to follow my template or make your own.

1. New York City
City: 8,450,000
Metro: 19,900,000

2. Los Angeles
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.

3. Chicago
City: 2,900,000
Metro: 10,100,000+easily.

4. Houston
City: 2,400,000
Metro: 6,200,000

5. Philadelphia
City: 1,300,000
Metro: 6,100,000

6. Boston
City: 620,000
Metro: 7,900,000 (CSA)

Metro D/FW: 6,400,000
Country as a whole: 330,000,000
Add any others you think should be here

Is there a better way for projections other than linearly applying previous growth rate? I don't think so. It is definite to be inaccurate but that is what a projection is.

We won't know the 2010 census until April of 2011 though. I think DFW will pass 6.4 million by that time and Houston will come up just a little short of 6 million. I also do not believe Chicago will pass 10 million as well. But they will be around 9.9 million.

Not sure what is confusing about LA...There is the MSA which is about 12mil and the CSA which is about 17, no different than Baltimore/Washington or Boston/Providence or SF/SJ

I don't think Chicagoland will pass 10mil, and I would predict about 30k loss for Chicago city limits.

The LA CSA already surpassed 18 Million according to the state of CA and I expect the Census will find the same when they actually count.

As far as the Bay Area, by state estimates:
2010
San Jose 1,100,000
San Francisco 865,000
Oakland 435,000
Bay Area CSA 7.8 Million

Right. Every city has the MSA and CSA (except for a few like Miami doesn't have a CSA). There is no confusion about LA there.

If you're going to use CSA for one (which I agree you should), use CSA for all. Don't be mixing and matching. NY CSA is already over 22 million.

Nah................ It's at least a couple million less than that. Ask a native NY'er. NJ does not count.

Unless it's convenient & they want to win the "metro area" contest. Then the
Garden State counts.
