[quote]Essentially it all deals with how many people commute in. If something like 25% of a county's workforce commutes into the city for work, it is included in the metro.[/quote] Yes. I think it is strange that Eureka Springs (Carroll County) isn't considered a part of the NWA metro, but t...

[quote]Is Birmingham just Jefferson County ? Which is misleading if so[/quote] Dude. The definition is based on how an area interacts via commerce and labor. Most micropolitan areas are simply county boundaries because they are small cities and don't draw significant numbers of people from ou...

[quote]GTR was defined as a Micropolitan area 3 or 4 years ago. I read about it, and found it online. Why it would be defined as something different now wouldn't make any sense. [/quote] Here's your map. http://www2.census.gov/geo/maps/metroarea/stcbsa_pg/Feb2013/cbsa2013_MS.pdf...

re: Size and Growth of SEC Metros - Numberwang
Fayetteville to Bentonville (town centers) is further apart than Starkville to Columbus. There are two cities of 80,000 and 60,000 located between them (Rogers and Springdale), and two other Fortune 500 HQs in those towns. Like I said, it has a lot in common with NWA in the late 70s/early 80s....

[quote]I think the OKC growth actually goes hand in hand with the Metroplex. Not sure about NWA as its a bit different not 90% reliant on energy like OKC.[/quote] I'm just talking in terms of "attracting workers". With so many people being drawn into Texas from everywhere, it's surprising that a...

[quote]Golden Triangle (Mississippi) - Wikipedia[/quote] I'm familiar. Each of the three large towns is reported as its own "Micropolitan" area right now, because they haven't reached the point of "growing together" into the same metro. In a lot of ways, that is how Northwest Arkansas was...

Yeah Texas growth is amazing. I've always viewed the growth in OKC and NWA as surprising in part due to having to compete with the huge magnets in North Texas....

[quote]The Golden Triangle has a population of around 75k. Starkville is in it, so that info is incorrect. But not surprising.[/quote] "The Golden Triangle" is a local term, and doesn't represent an actual metropolitan statistical area. It's like saying "the tri-county area". Starkville, like...

Northwest Arkansas grows, always. It grows at a rate that is manageable, though. 20 years ago I never would have thought it would get this big. ...

[quote]When both the campus and the town are small then they seem further apart, I guess?[/quote] True story. The entire area known as "Dickson Street" used to be called "depot town" way back yonder. That's because it was the area where the train depot was located, and it was located "bet...

2-3 story red-brick is quaint, but it doesn't do a lot for me. Hendrix has that. It is a peaceful and small campus. No grandeur of this sort, though. [img]https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/d7/43/e4/d743e4431ecb7d76a7803d8285fdd8cf.jpg[/img] Old Main looks like something you'd see in...
