Yeah thats what I meant, combined statistical area.
The amount of successful retail here is more indicative of an area pull of a half million than 200k. I dont think some of the stores would be so successful only pulling from a population of 200k.

A Combined Statistical Area is simply the combination of two or more statistical areas (micropolitan or metropolitan).

You'll notice that Alexandria and Houma are large enough to merit metropolitan status, but do not combine with any other areas. Same goes with a few micropolitan areas, such as Ruston and Morgan City, that are not a part of a larger core. Yet, the Fort Polk and De Ridder micro areas do combine into a CSA.

Clear as mud?

Actually yes. I cannot believe I forgot that Jennings was included in the CSA of the Lake Charles area!

I've only been to a handful of the cities on the list: Baton Rouge, Shreveport, Monroe, Lake Charles and Alexandria. I picked Shreveport because when I lived in Texarkana me and my fam would often head there and always had a good time!

I picked Natchitoches. I am so tired of Alexandria/Pineville. I guess I lived in the area all of my life. Plus, Natchitoches is a small college town and, it reflects a miniature New Orleans. Cane River is awesome, too. It has a rich history, culture, entertainement for all ages, and great food.

The Alexandria MSA boundary is recorded to be the entire 'Parish of Rapides.'

I wish Pineville and Alexandria would come together as one city. I think it will be large enough then, to be thrown onto the national weather map on the national weather channel as a major city in Louisiana. It ticks me off everytime Alexandria is not recgnized as a major city in Louisiana, even with AEX. No respect!

The Alexandria MSA also includes Grant Parish and was the third fastest growing MSA in Louisiana over the last decade. As for respect by national media, I know the feeling being a Lafayette resident. But, I've found that it depends on the company. Sometimes all it takes is a simple email request to get "put on the map".
