Use the ready-to-use GIS projects with the CV XE GIS software to create maps and visually analyze data presented in this report. Add your own data. MetroGIS projects are available at no fee for CV XE GIS Level 1 and higher licensed users. MetroGIS projects may used with any CV XE GIS version. Contact us for additional information; mention "metro GIS projects" in the text section.

The following graphic shows an illustrative start-up view of the GIS project for the Charlotte, NC-SC metro. The set of counties comprising a metro, delineations, are updated from time-to-time by OMB. The following view shows the 2017 and 2018 metro vintages. Not all metros changed. The blue boundary and cross-hatched counties show the 2017 vintage. The area shaded with the salmon fill pattern shows the 2018 vintage. The legend panel at the left shows a partial list of layers/shapefiles included in the GIS project. Layers include ZIP codes and census tracts with demographic-economic attributes. Add your own layers using the GeoGateway feature, such as congressional districts, school districts, cities, detailed streets, block groups, census blocks, anong others.

 

Demographic, economic and related geographic data become progressively available for the latest vintage metros. Characteristics of the 2017 vintage metro, shown below, will be updated in early 2019.

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.
