As pointed out, these figures are from 7 years ago, as "urban populations" are updated by US Census every ten years, at the official decennial census (Demographia's stats come from US Census). Debate should focus on current figures, not vintage ones. Example: in three years -- the next 2020 urban census -- Savannah's urban population will most probably pass 300,000 based on current population trends in Chatham County alone. Urban Columbus and Macon (which are not growing) will be the same as in 2010: around 254,000 and 138,000, respectively.

These are current figures. And yes,the Columbus urban core is growing.

These "updates" are still not from US Census, but extrapolations from Demographia, a German outfit. US Census doesn't revise urban populations except every 10 years. I'll wait till those figures in 2020, thanks.

P.S. You should also let people know that the figures for these smaller US cities come toward the end of a long Demographia doc: pp. 104-110.

You left off Warner Robins up to 145,000. Middle GA is an interesting area and proves how bigger population doesnt necessarily mean more urban. Warner Robins now has a bigger UA than Macon, and at the next census report, Houston County will have a larger population than Bibb. Warner Robins still doesnt have a Downtown area like Macon or neighborhoods like Vineville that actually looks like you're in a city, it just has much more cookie cutter subdivision sprawl.

Macon-Warner Robins is one big broken core. I think this is the very reason why inner-city Macon haven't seen growth this decade.

I totally Agree with you guys on this one, it also shows how the Macon-Warner Robins MSA's/ CSA is a Special Case out of all the 2nd Tier Metro's in the State of Georgia!!!

And it's the main reason why Bibb County population only grew by 3k since 1980.

I'm sure the Urban infill will eventually Glop Together, already really starting to happen. When driving on GA HWY 247 still feels pretty Urban and Industrial and not really a Major gap between the two. Warner Robins is maybe a mile south of the Macon Airport. So in true essence the Total Urban would be around 280,000 for that entire area. IMO, the Macon-Warner Robins CSA acts more like a smaller version of may be a Dallas-Ft. Worth or Minneapolis- St. Paul in it's own way, Warner Robins being the more Suburban half. That's how Macon tends to differ more from Columbus and Augusta.

I've never understood why Beaufort County, SC is not included in Savanah's MSA.. I feel like Savannah gets shortchanged because of this. I mean their airport is even called the Savannah/Hilton Head airport.. why is Hilton Head and Bluffton not part of teh greater Savannag MSA. If it was included, Savannah would have the second largest MSA in the state after Atlanta
