Dallas is charging in with the big dogs in the CSA stats. DFW growth has just been amazing. 7th in CSA and 4th in MSA. I really don't give much weight to CSA stats. It covers a very large region.

Too bad the US Census Bureau is replacing their MSA designations with the CSA:

Yea they're quite large...but in many cases they're only marginally larger than some other cities' MSAs. In the case of the Bay Area, they're considerably smaller in land area than some major city MSAs (about 2,000 less than Dallas' MSA).

How can it be the official word, when the official CSA counts come only every 10 years!

San Antonio is not a CSA. If it was it would count parts of Austin.
