Can someone explain what metro means and the population of the metro cities

Jacksonville has a current estimated metro population of 1,250,000 +/- a few thousand since it is just an estimate.

This includes the following counties:

Where can I learn more about the new standards for metropolitan areas and new definitions showing the components of the areas?

The metropolitan area (typically a core area such as a central city along with the counties economically and socially connected to it) has long been a popular geographic unit of analysis, and the Census Bureau has long released extensive statistics for these areas.

They answer it in the bold type.
