The only reason New York is ahead of florida is because the boost of New York city and it's metro population. But Florida will catch up soon.

Florida will overtake NY for 3rd largest, just watch. It's only 1.4 million that separates us from them. One question, if Greater New York has 22 million and NY state has 19 million, then wouldn't NY be number 4?

The 22 million refers to the NYC CSA which is of course multiple MSA's. It includes part of Penn, NJ and Conn.

According to the latest census report, Florida is projected to overtake New York state by 2010. Florida is growing far faster and New York state actually recorded a loss over the past year. Florida could reach nearly 20,000,000 in population over the next few years if it doesn't slow. As usual the census reports the West and the South continue to dominate the USA's population growth, which is the fastest in the industrialized world by far. If current trends continue, the USA could have a population of 550,000,000 by 2050. It could be over 1,000,000,000 by the end of the century. If you think urban sprawl is bad now, wonder what it will be like then??
