I wonder how the list lays out if you use CSA, instead of just MSA. Pretty cool information though.

Say, where's Miami? I honestly expected to see it on this list, even without using the CSA.

Is this for new metros? Some are a little funny, like SF and Oakland are separate and Baltimore is listed outside DC.

I think is MSA, not CSA. Aren't SF and Oakland in seperate MSA but different CSA? I don't have the list any more.

These are the statistics that prove that we can argue about aspects of different cities but one can always produce a legit statistic to support any argument.

btw- That Boston number is pretty impressive. ;)

This list splits Miami's MSA up into three separate metros. That's Dade, Broward, & Palm Beach Counties or Miami, Fort Lauderdale, & West Palm Beach. Add up the three and you'll see Miami's real number.

It should also be interesting to note that cities such as Atlanta do not have a CSA, so its metro number is the same whether you choose MSA or CSA.

Umm, that's not entirely true. Atlanta does have a CSA. The Gainesville MSA is part of Atlanta CSA.

Anyone could do a per capita list?

From what's shown it appears that even though LA's #2 for example, Chicago and NY have a higher wealth per capita. Though overall this list should be fairly similar to a regular MSA population list, though some exceptionally wealthy ones such as Boston get bumped up.
