Thanks for the figures but there are 2004 and some 2005 figures for most of that already available and posted.

Not sure about why they are combined/split but it might have something to do with the redrawing of MSA lines recently.

That is part of why I pointed out these figures are outdated. Miami's current MSA does include them.

If you go by 2003 census estimates, WPB micropolitan area was ahead of Jax by only 12,000. Considereing in 2000, WPB was ahead by 12,000, we've keep pace exactly with WPB.

It'll be tough to keep up with PBC growth. The flight out of Dade will continue and I think you'll start to see more flight from Broward to PBC. I personally think Scripps was really a coup for PBC, I think it will give the area an identity and really become a white-collar economic engine.

Of course, looking at PBC alone is kind of cheating, as it's probably analagous to a large suburban co elsewhere (like Johnson Co, KS).

I don't know why Miami and Ft Lauderdale are sometimes treated like seperate urban areas. Dade,Broward and Palm Beach on the coast is nothing but one big unbroken urban area of over 5 million. Tampa and St Petersburg are broken by the large expanse of water,Tampa Bay.

Florida is a growth juggernaut. The only other states growing by over 3 million a decade are Texas and California,then you take into account that California is 3 times the physical size and Texas is 5 times the physical size you can see how Florida's population density is just skyrocketing. It's the 2nd most densely populated non-micro* state after New York,and the first since I don't know when to exceed 300 persons per sq mile since the last state. In 1990 the population per sq mile was 240. In 2000 it was 296,in 2010 it's estimated to be about 360 per sq mile.

The other thing is that the population boom is almost entirely coastal and that the Everglades knock out a huge chunk of the Southern half of the peninsula. The density in the three South Florida counties is dramatic. The satellite pictures and population dot maps white out that area. Southwest Florida's population is really becoming dense as well.

Wow !! I bet downtown Tamplando or Orlampa is not that far away. Lakeland looks prime for more growth.

I thought it was cool that you could see the white areas in Hillsborough and Pinellas where the International airports are located.

Pasco County just north of Tampa will look alot more blue in the next few years with all the new suburban development. It will make the Tampa metro a solid blue box.

I think they should stick with the Originals because those hybrid words aren't working. Lakeland may actually bare some surprises when all is said and done.
