the charlotte metro is char, rock hill, concord, gastonia. off the top of my head i think its like right at 17 or 18 nationally.

nope, 33rd.

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.

http://en.wikipedia...._North_Carolina

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.

well it depends.the MSA is what the US uses overall for metro areas.
the 16 county thing is this ongoing coalition of counties that was started in the late 80's early 90's to regionalize the area to draw biz and money.

city limit pop Charlotte is bigger than Atlanta. but metro wise not the case.

im sorta a stat nerd when it comes to cities and population and trends and such.

It's predicted that the Houston area will double it's size in less than 5 years.

Consider yourselves lucky.

Hopefully I'll be one of those 2 million in the Charlotte region by 2015.

At least I'm a yankee that loves the Panthers...
