i don't mean to offend anyone but from what i know, Jacksonville is the most populated city in Florida. it has more than Miami which is much warmer than Jacksonville.

Why do more people live in Jacksonville than Miami? is it a cheaper city or something?

It's just that Jacksonville is consolidated with Duval county for the most part, that's why it appears to have more people. If Miami made the same move it would have around 2.7 million people. For Florida cities you shouldn't really look at the city limit populations to gauge their size, but more like the County, and metro to get a clear representation of how big the cities actually are.

Jacksonville's metropolitan statistical area, which is far less arbitrary than municipal boundaries, is about 1.5 million population. Miami's MSA is around 6 million.

The Miami metro area has 6.1 million people and the Jacksonville metro area only has 1.5 million people.

However, Jacksonville metro has been growing much faster than Miami metro. Jacksonville's growth has been 2.0% last year and only 0.9% growth for Miami metro. But even with the explosive growth of Jacksonville, it will never be anywhere near as big as Miami metro in our lifetime unless maybe something catastrophic happens down there with rising sea levels due to climate change, forcing people to move out in droves. I think that could happen in our lifetime. Some parts are already experiencing unprecedented sea level rises.

To be fair in order for Jax to even see the same numerical growth of SE Florida it would have to have 3.6% growth yoy even with .9% growth Miami adds way more people than Jax.

I just saw a poll that had the Orlando metro at 3.5% growth,if anywhere else in Florida gets close to as big as Miami its going to be Orlando,it'll take decades but its happening.
