The list only lists combined areas. Alexandria is not combined with anything.
Right... is there a reason Pinville doesn't met the criteria to combine with Alexandria? I mean it(Pinville) is bigger than both Ft Polk and De Ridder

No, Pineville IS included, as it's in Rapides parish. The Alex metro (MSA) consists of all of Rapides and Grant parishes.

And we might even see a split, such as the Ft. Polk micro associated with the Alexandria metro in a combined area and DeRidder joining with Lake Charles/Jennings.

I can also see the Ruston micro joining the Monroe CSA at some point. Maybe not enough to be assimilated into the overall Monroe MSA, but, at the very least into the CSA. Surprised it isn't already...
Does the DeRidder/Ft Polk area also include Leesville?

Wow, didn't know that Baton Rouge had more parishes in it's metro than New Orleans. Are the New Orleans parishes bigger in size?

Orleans Parish is the 1st or 2nd smallest parish. But the other parishes are more populated.

The biggest difference between the BR and NO metro areas is that NO has more people confined into a much smaller space than BR. More than half of the GNO population reside in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes. On the other hand I believe that BR's pop is more evenly distributed among a larger area.
