Census Releases 7/1/07 County pop. estimates

The Census Bureau has just released the latest county-based population estimates, with a reference date of July 1, 2007. You can access the data here:
http://www.census.gov/popest/countie...ST2007-01.html

If you know the components of your area's MSA and/or CSA (this can be found on the census site also), you can now calculate the population estimate for July, 2007. Here's Atlanta:

Atlanta Sandy Springs Marietta MSA 2000: 4,281,616 / 2007: 5,278,904

The Atlanta CSA adds the Gainesville, GA MSA, and the micropolitan areas of Cedartown, GA, LaGrange, GA, Thomaston, GA, and Valley, AL:

Atlanta Sandy Springs Gainesville CSA 2000: 4,583,958 / 2007: 5,626,400

The Atlanta MSA has added 997,288 and the Atlanta CSA has added 1,042,442 people, since 2000. The Census Bureau noted that, in the 2000 through 2007 period, Georgia had 18 of the nation's 100 fastest-growing counties, leading the nation in that number, and three of the top 10, also leading the nation in that number.

For Seattle:

Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue MSA (King, Snohomish, Pierce Counties): 3,309,347
Seattle-Tacoma-Olympia CSA (add Island, Thurston, Kitsap, Mason Counties): 3,922,344

For the CSA that's an increase of over 52,000 since 2006 and over 307,000 since 2000.

Not surprised on the Georgia county numbers since they are so small.

The Atlanta MSA has added 894,784 and the Atlanta CSA has added 939,938 people, since 2000.

Are you telling me that the Atlanta MSA only grew by 39,000 over one year? You sure you added up all of the counties?

Houston MSA 2000: 4,715,407 / 2006: 5,539,949 / 2007: 5,660,245

Between 2006-2007, Houston's MSA grew by 120,296 people.

Thanks, Trae...they didn't look right to me either...I selected one incorrect county...I had accidentally added Cook County (16,000) instead of Coweta (105,000)! Yeah, the Atlanta metro grew by 151,000 over the last year. Now THAT makes more sense....

I finally understand what happened now. Houston's CSA is nearly the Houston MSA now. I could have sworn that Atlanta was nearer in population and it is when you compare CSA's and it is. In 2006 Houston's CSA was 5,641,077.

This thread is dead...no one looks in this section of the forum. I started it in this section because the moderators always moved my previous population threads into it. Now I see someone has started a similar thread over in City Discussions and it's getting much more views. The inconsistency is kind of annoying.

Yeah, Atlanta is close with the CSA. I think by 2010 though, Houston will add Beaumont-Port Arthur, which has about 400,000 people. People commute from Jefferson County (Beaumont) on down to Galveston (for Galveston's port, UTMB, etc.). Beaumonters also head to east Houston for the Port of Houston and the refineries, etc. It really isn't that bad of a commute from Beaumont to the east side of Houston. 45 minutes or so.
