So here we go. These are just the latest provided by our federal government, mostly reflecting totals from 2009, some from 2008. Looking forward to what the 2010 census reveals...

Notably absent in the CSA ranking are Alexandria and Houma. But don't fret. San Antonio and Austin are also absent. My guess is data is still either being compiled or debated (maybe both).

Population Estimates (http://www.census.gov/popest/metro/metro.html - broken link)

The U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) defines a set of core based statistical areas (CBSAs) throughout the country. CBSAs are delineated on the basis of a central urban area or urban cluster — a contiguous area of relatively high population density. The counties containing the core urban area are known as the central counties of the CBSA. Additional surrounding counties (known as outlying counties) can be included in the CBSA if these counties have strong social and economic ties to the central counties as measured by commuting and employment. Outlying counties are included in the CBSA if the employment interchange measure (total of in commuting and out commuting) is 25% or more. Note that some areas within these outlying counties may actually be rural in nature. CBSAs are subdivided into metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) and micropolitan statistical areas based on the population of the core urban area. Under certain conditions, one or more CBSAs may be grouped together to form a larger statistical entity known as a combined statistical area (CSA). Other names, such as Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area and Primary Metropolitan Statistical Area, have been used in the past but are now discontinued. CBSAs are composed of counties and county-equivalents.U.S. census statistics for metropolitan areas are reported based on these definitions.
