From 2010-2018, Ada County was the 65th fastest growing county in the nation and Canyon County was the 81st.

Also I don't recall Twin Falls being classified as a "metro" previous to these listings. Unless I'm mistaken, it appears they have just been upgraded from a "micro" to "metro" area. The 2017 table does not list Twin Falls which appears to confirm this.

Other interesting info: Idaho's population is now at 1,754,208. If present trends continue, Idaho will surpass West Virginia (currently 1,805,832 and falling) in total population by 2020 and is quickly approaching Nebraska and New Mexico. All three of the those states have 5 electoral votes in the Electoral College and three congressional districts. They may simply drop WV's elector and give it to a different state (such as TX) but it's clear that Idaho is quickly approaching the population required to receive an additional congressional district and elector.

Just checked on the Spokane metro too, so looks like consolidated CDA-Spokane (Kootenai and Spokane counties respectively) stand at 734,998. Wonder where they're at as of now.

Edit: I see Jimthemanincda already had updated his sig to show that. I think that puts the area at give or take 150,000 more people than when I left to move to Seattle. Fun to see it grow.

Sorry that I forgot to mention this. Twin Falls was designated as a metro area by the US Census Bureau in the fall of 2017.

Thanks for sharing the article jim.

I'm surprised the city manager for Twin Falls doesn't understand that a metro area is not only based on the central city reaching a population of 50,000 but also the designated urbanized area reaching a population threshold of 100,000 (in this case Twin Falls and Jerome counties). Per census.gov:

"Metropolitan Statistical Areas
An MSA consists of one or more counties that contain a city of 50,000 or more inhabitants, or contain a Census Bureau-defined urbanized area (UA) and have a total population of at least 100,000 (75,000 in New England). Counties containing the principal concentration of population—the largest city and surrounding densely settled area—are components of the MSA."
