Population and Density will be debated perpetually on here (Yes the core of Philly and NYC would fit well inside the MSA of Houston but who cares)
I dont disagree that AC + Philadelphia have their own unique identity but so do equidistant areas in other metroes like SF and SJ, Bos and Providence, Washington and Bal,Galveston and Houston,Dallas and Fort Worth.

The problem is that Bos-Prov, Galveston-Houston,SF-SJ are considered the same CSA metro but Philly-Reading,Philly-Lancaster, Philly-Allentown are not.

I'm perfectly content if you tell me Reading + Philly(40 miles apart) are not in the same CSA but then dont turn around and have the audacity to tell me Fredericksburg Va and Havre DeGrace MD which are seperated by 150 miles are apart of the same CSA or Providence RI and Manchester NH (120 mi) are a part of the same metro.

Dont even get me started on Trenton not being in Phillys MSA let alone CSA. These city boundaries are less than 20 miles apart.

The reason why Houston and Galveston are the same suburb is because Galveston County is the suburban county of Harris County. There are cities close to Houston to make a huge impact and most commuters travel to Houston daily to work. I would say over 50%. Galveston city is just at the very end of Galveston County and it's nothing more than an Island anyway. Galveston city and Houston is 50 miles apart.

And there is a impenetrable fortress wall between Philly- Trenton,Philly- Reading,Philly-Allentown?


I'm just looking for fairness here.If you can make the case that Houston and Galveston Are in the same metro, and Philly and Trenton, Philly and Reading ARE Not in the same metro then you need to destroy the data gathering information system used in that system.

IT just does not add up.

According to the last GDP figures I remember seeing, 04 > 03

I wonder if that's still the case.

Probably. If I remember correctly, DC's CSA had a pretty decent margin on Chicago in terms of GDP.

That's still the case. There is a table somewhere on this forum that shows the CSA GDP for Chicagoland, Bay Area, D.C.-Bmore, Boston-New England. I will find it for you and link it.
