I would move Boston below DFW and Houston for 2030. These two cities are projected to add a lot more in that time frame.

I can imagine San Antonio giving Charlotte a run for that number 20 slot by 2030.

I already have Boston below DFW for 2030.

Although Houston is on fire, I don't think Houston will surpass Boston by 2030. Unlike NYC & Philly, Boston's CSA is still growing at a decent clip, and is already 1 million+ ahead of Houston's.

2018 CSA Estimates & % Change From 2010:

6. Boston-Worcester-Providence, MA-RI-NH-CT Combined Statistical Area
8,285,407
+4.97%

9. Houston-The Woodlands, TX Combined Statistical Area
7,197,883
+17.72%

Sure, if "arbitrary" means "based on factual data and documented growth trends that actually exist".

How does one separate NYC CSA from Philadelphia CSA “based on factual data and documented growth trends that actually exist” in a manner that is not arbitrary?

Your point?

Great, thrilled to know that anything that can be proven based on factual data and documented trends that actually exist is synonymous with arbitrary silliness.

Again, how does one separate NYC CSA from Philadelphia CSA?

It's a legitimate question. If there is factual data and documented trends, as you state, to prove that it can be done without being arbitrary, then I'm seriously interested in understanding how.

For example, why is Trenton officially part of NYC when geographically and functionally it is much more closely associated with Philly? And considering that Bucks County displays major commuting patterns into the NYC metro area, why is it solely part of Philly? Is the Delaware River the dividing line? If so, why is Allentown part of NYC? It's all BS. The answer is, you cannot separate the two via non-arbitrary means. Where do you split Jersey?

Phoenix doesn't have a CSA. It's MSA will likely pass Boston by 2020.

There's no reason to believe Texas cities won't slow down, especially compared to high tax, older established cities.

Being the giant nerd that I am, I pretty much have the CSA/MSA rankings memorized. Something seemed off when I saw that 2018 list. Orlando jumped up a bunch of spots and is now in between Minneapolis/St Paul and Seattle/Tacoma somehow? I looked it up to make sure I'm not crazy. Perhaps someone made some wacky edits to some wikipedia articles? The Census Bureau's data doesn't match the wikipedia articles for CSA's or Primary Statistical Areas.

And if that includes Payson, Arizona -- LOL. Payson has nothing to do with Phoenix. It's at the base of the Mogollon Rim in an Alpine region, with heavy snow in the winter months. I used to sleep in cabin at Kohl's Ranch.

Yeah, I thought the 4 million+ figure for Orlando's CSA seemed at least 1 to 1.5 million too high.

I also thought it was strange that Austin wasn't listed. Is it not a part of a CSA?

CSA definitions were redefined last October. Orlando gained Lakeland, Phoenix got a CSA, and Austin lost its CSA in 2013 when Marble Falls was removed.

Houston is already slowing down to some extent and the rest of Texas could as well as the rest of the country improves economically opening up more options for people to work/ live rather than just the sunbelt cities. I just think it will at least top Boston in the next 10-11 years. I lived there (briefly) and much of the region is pretty stagnant where as virtually everything within 75 miles of downtown (Houston) is growing. Boston and the area around it is just loaded with tons of decent sized MSA's in their own right; Providence; Worcester, Nashua, Manchester, etc...

As of 2018, the Boston CSA had approximately 1,087,524 more residents than the Houston CSA (8,285,407 vs. 7,197,883).

Houston's CSA gained approximately 1,083,321 residents between 2010 and 2018.

Boston's CSA gained approximately 392,031 residents between 2010 and 2018.

So even if Boston's CSA only gained half as many residents (196,015) between 2018 and 2030 - a 12 year period - as it did during that 8 year period, Houston's CSA (which is slowing down as you already noted) would have to gain 1,283,539 residents between 2018 and 2030 just to tie Boston's CSA, and both of those scenarios appear unlikely.
