What good are predictions? Why don't we just wait and see?

Midwest states like Ohio and Michigan may see a decline, while the west coast as a whole should remain steady.
Yeahh, that seems accurate. I think Philadelphia city proper actually gained this decade, first time since 1950.

Yeah, like California is gonna do that. It has a slower growth. It could be right around 40 million by now. The largest cities are going to be:

New York City 8.5m
Los Angeles 4.2m
Chicago 2.9m
Houston 2.4m
Phoenix 1.6m
Philadelphia 1.5m
San Antonio 1.4m
San Diego 1.4m
Dallas 1.3m
San Jose 1.05m

Wonder why people think Dallas is over in San Diego in population. San Diego could be over at 1,404,000 while Dallas is at 1,367,000.

Ok, the state list looks just like this

California 40m
Texas 26m
New York 20m
Florida 16m

I say California is gonna stay at 53-54 repesentatives, and Texas picking up around 4.

The 20 metros (MSA's or CSA's, whatever )

New York 18m
Los Angeles 14m
Chicago 9.7m
Dallas 6.4m
Philadelphia 5.85m
Houston 5.8m
Miami 5.5m
Atlanta 5.45m
Washington 5.3m
Boston 4.55m
Deroit 4.3m
Phoenix 4.3m
San Francisco 4.25m
Riverside 4.2m
Seattle 3.4m
Minneapolis 3.2m
San Diego 3.1m
St. Louis 2.75m
Tampa 2.7m
Baltimore 2.5m

Now for the last, 5 counties
Los Angeles 10m
Cook 5.3m
Harris 4.07m
Maricopa 4.05m
San Diego 3.1m

These are just my predictions, but when they come out in the winter of 2010 and the spring of 2011, they might be just like this.

Where is Philadelphia on your largest cities list?

I think Los Angeles by the US Census Bureau is going to be 3.9 million, California Censuses have put it presently at 4 million as of January.

Otherwise the rest of your list looks right.

San Diego might still have bragging rights as the nation’s eighth-largest city, but its population growth last year was the slowest of the decade, evidence of the steep drop-off in housing development, according to an analysis of data released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Between 2008 and 2009, the city added a mere 547 people, while much-smaller National City was the county’s big gainer, growing at a stunning 4.2 percent. Officials in National City credit the rapid rise to the ongoing development of the city’s largest housing project ever, a nearly 500-unit senior complex.

Anything below fifth isn't really worth bragging about anyway, should just be glad a city is in the top ten.

Is that article for real! DFW and Houston add more people in 2 days than SD did that entire year?

Oh, get a hold of it . That was for the year 2008-09. This is census predictions. Just because The city gained only 600 doesn't mean they can gain 80,000 people . And besides, I was using the 2010 state estimates. They say San Diego has over 1,376,173 people and gained over 17,041 people.

San Diego - 1,404,000
Dallas - 1,367,000
