The people in those small developments all commute to Houston. You go just a bit away from those small developments, your in rural America. There are just enough people commuting to Houston (since there are no large population centers in those counties), to Houston.

Just go to Google Earth, and see what I am talking about.
I'm not real sure at what you're getting at. This can be said of countless metro areas in the country. Just about all of them include really rural counties that get counted in MSA and CSA. It's all about commuting patterns. Are you just describing the area to everyone?
