What is a Metro Map (MSA):
- The general concept of a metropolitan area is that of alarge population nucleus, together with adjacent communities having a high degree of social and economic integration with that core. Metropolitan areas comprise one or more entire counties, except in New England, where cities and towns are the basic geographic units.
- The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) defines metropolitan areas for purposes of collecting, tabulating, and publishing federal data.
- Metropolitan area definitions result from applying published standards to Census Bureau data.
- The 1990 standards provide that each newly qualifying MSA must include at least: one city with 50,000 or more inhabitants, or a Census Bureau-defined urbanized area (of at least 50,000inhabitants) and a total metropolitan population of at least100,000 (75,000 in New England.
