Not sure why they're separate, but I suppose there's a reason. Either way, these numbers are basically double what they were less than a month ago, and 4x what we were seeing 9 months back.
NJ is split amongst a few US Census Bureau Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and that is what the Waze areas are based off of. (Or was it is the Combined Statistical Areas, CSAs? Same impact either way.)
This is actually why I questioned it...I guess it's splitting hairs, but it's the "Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD Metropolitan Statistical Area" which includes 5 counties in New Jersey. I just find it odd that the "Philadelphia" & "Wilmington" areas are combined on Waze while the "Camden" area is separate AND gives numbers 2-3x that across the river. The 5 counties that make up the NJ portion of the MSA don't even equal the population of Philadelphia County. Is it possible that all of NJ is combined together? I get similar numbers when I cross into Mercer County in both the Trenton & Princeton areas.
It really doesn't matter, other than it makes the sixth largest MSA look like it has terrible Waze penetration when I don't think that's the case at all.
