More Info:
  • Populations are as of 2010. "Metro Areas" are Metropolitan Statistical Areas, as defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. Rhode Island is the only state without a single-state metro area. There are 21 bonuses for multi-state metros that are larger than any single-state metro in at least one of their component states; principal cities in component states that DO have larger metro areas will not trigger these bonuses. *See notes in the comments regarding New England MSAs and Detroit.
