U.S. Census Bureau Releases Report on Metropolitan/Micropolitan Statistical Areas East Stroudsburg Micropolitan Statistical Area 3rd Fastest Growing in Nation
The Pennsylvania State Data Center at Penn State Harrisburg reports that the U.S. Census Bureau has today released a report on metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas for the nation. The report: Population Change in Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Areas: 1990 to 2003, examines the population of metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas of the U.S., focusing on size, most populous areas and fastest-growing areas. The
report uses the December 2003 definitions of core-based statistical areas (CBSAs) from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. CBSAs consist of one or more whole
counties or their equivalents and are designated as either metro areas or micro areas. Metro areas contain at least one urbanized area of 50,000 or more people and micro areas
— a new statistical geography — contain at least one urban cluster of 10,000 to 50,000 people. The report also uses U.S. Census Bureau estimates and estimates of the
components of population change to arrive at July 1, 2003 population estimates.
