Anchorage, its suburban/exurban Mat-Su Valley and Fairbanks-North Star Borough are the main population centers in the state.  The municipality of Anchorage has a population of about 300,000, and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough and Fairbanks-North Star Borough each have a population around 100,000.
 
The next largest city is the state capital of Juneau, but it only has about 32,000 people.  The Kenai Peninsula Borough south of Anchorage actually has more people than the City and Borough of Juneau (about 55,000), but its population is split among a number of towns.

So are these the "final unofficial" results or....?

Handel--- 128,231     (52.7%)
Ossoff---   115,126    (47.3%)

Total 2 Party Votes--- 243,357

Can anyone confirm?

Last I heard, the mail-in absentee vote was still out in Cobb and Fulton counties.

Surprised about how close SC was (considering Archie Parnell was basically ignored compared to Ossoff). If Dems had put in just a bit more effort there and Kansas it would have been a winnable race. The two where they did put in effort, well it didn't turn out well.

No.  Paradoxically, nationalizing the South Carolina race would have ultimately mobilized Republicans, not Democrats, to vote tonight.  Democrats turned out in SC-05.  Republicans largely stayed home.  As I said a few times in the Montana thread, national Democrats are probably better off staying out of the race (or at least remain deep behind the scenes) in Republican-favorable districts like MT-AL and SC-05.

DDHQ calls GA-06 for Handel.

Cool maps!

Orange County, CA please? Smiley

It's in the Los Angeles Metro map, which is a few pages back.  Check the first post for a link to it.

The Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill CSA:



This includes the Raleigh and Durham-Chapel Hill Metropolitan Areas, which are technically separate from each other, along with a few micropolitan areas on the periphery of those MSAs.

Memphis:



De Soto County, Mississippi appears to be the main constant here - always growing.

Oklahoma City:

Please do Raleigh/Durham and Memphis next please.

They're 2 of the next 3 to be done, after Oklahoma City.  Hopefully, i'll get to it this weekend.

Technically, Durham is in its own metropolitan area, but I'm going to try to put both the Raleigh and Durham metros on the same map.

I will be running for Lincoln Senator in this month's election.

The metro includes all of Rhode Island and Bristol County, Massachusetts.  It appears that Bristol County is growing faster than Rhode Island, thanks to growth in Boston's exurbs.
New Bedford and Fall River are drags on Bristol County, and aren't quite as close as Brockton or Lowell to have a post-deindustrialization recovery.

True - but Rhode Island has only grown by .37% since 2010, and the Providence metro has grown by .87%.  The rest has to be made up by Bristol County growth, largely in the northern part of the county near I-495.

Metro Jacksonville:



That's the 40th largest metropolitan area in the country, and the first with a population below 1.5 million.

Hampton Roads (Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News):

16  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Population Growth Patterns in Metro Areas, 2000-16 on: June 07, 2017, 08:15:05 pm
Greater Cleveland:



At least the western/southwestern exurbs are growing.

That completes the top 36 metros (others through Nashville are already done) - and all metro areas with a population of 2,000,000 or more (Indy is the cut off).

Greater Austin:


It's one of the fastest-growing metros in the country, in contrast to our next metro area.
18  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Population Growth Patterns in Metro Areas, 2000-16 on: June 06, 2017, 11:15:38 pm
Kansas City:



That's the last of the top 30 metros.

Las Vegas:



The Las Vegas Metropolitan Area is a one-county metro - though the CSA includes Clark and Nye Counties in Nevada and Mojave County, AZ.  It's probably one of the largest CSAs by land area - though the Los Angeles CSA might give it a run for its money.

Greater Cincinnati:



Notice the growth in Northern Kentucky.

Greater Pittsburgh:



It's even bleaker than St. Louis.  Only areas in the West and North Hills and Washington County around the I-79 corridor are growing at all most years - though, like St. Louis, the city of Pittsburgh itself had a few years of slow growth.

I corrected the MSP map.  Thanks for pointing out the error.

Really emphasizes how dire STL has been recently

I was surprised to see the city of St. Louis itself actually gain a little population for a year or two at the end of the last decade.  But it and the immediate region has generally been down, down, down - especially the northern St. Louis County suburbs.  The Missouri exurbs and South St. Louis County are growing a bit, at least.

It looks like only Hennepin is changing in the 11-12, 12-13, and 13-14 panels.

That's a bit bizarre.  It's possible I forgot to change the county sub layer, but I think Ramsey is on the place layer, too, so you'd think that would change along with Hennepin if that were the issue.  I'll check into it tonight.

Greater St. Louis:



That's the last of the top 25 metros.
