Principal Cities (about principal cities); Click link to view city profile.

The largest city in each metropolitan area is designated a "principal city." Additional cities qualify if specified requirements are met concerning population size and employment. The title of each metropolitan area consists of the names of up to three of its principal cities and the name of each state into which the metropolitan area extends.

Cities are places of population concentration. Incorporated cities have governmental powers assigned by the corresponding state. Metros, or CBSAs, contain one or more incorporated city. The Census Bureau develops annual estimates of the population for all cities using a model-based estimation procedure (in contrast to sample survey-based population estimates developed through the American Comunity Survey (ACS). The model based estimates developed for all cities time lag of only a little over a year. In contrast, the ACS-based estimates for cities under 65,000 population have a time lag of four years and are estimates for a 5-year time period. For example, in January 2019, the 7/1/17 estimates are the most recent model-based population data for all cities, whereas the 2017 ACS estimates (centric to mid-2015) are the recent ACS-survey population estimates available for all cities.

Metropolitan areas are defined as one or more contiguous counties/county equivalent areas based on a set of demographic-economic criteria. Counties and county equivalent areas comprising the metro are shown below. For multi-county metros, this section provides insights into how the population is changing by county. Many metros changed geographic composition (counties included in the metro) between the Census 2010 vintage and the current vintage. hese changes, if any, are also shown below (county is marked with **).

Housing unit estimates shown in section 5.1. are model-based estimates developed by the Census Bureau annually. These estimates may differ some from ACS-based estimates shown in section 5.2. The model-based estimates are available in advance of the ACS-based data and developed using a different method. Unlike the ACS-based 1-year estimates, the model-based estimates are available for all counties and metros.

The RPP is a measure of the cost of living in that area relative to the U.S. overall average. The RPP is available for states and MSAs. The 2006-2016 series will be updated and extended to 2017 in May 2019. More detail is available in subscriber edition.
