last I saw we were the 23rd largest media market in the US, it's kind of a good way to judge how big of a area we are.

the Triangle is a bigger population but it's spread out more and charlotte is more concentrated.

Was speaking of the literal city of Charlotte.

But the Charlotte Metropolitan area has 1.7million or so and the "combined statistical area" has 2.4million people. This is a 16 county region - the one that SCP is referring too.

So they have to be reporting it wrong. Basically doubling the regional population in 2 years time? That's either wrong or some crazy poop.

Yeah, like I said earlier - they had to have misspoke. There's literally no way. The infrastructure would go into meltdown.
