Metropolitan areas are defined as one or more contiguous counties based on a set of demographic-economic criteria. Counties comprising the metro are shown in Table 1, below. For multi-county metros, Table 1 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/designation (February 2013). These changes, if any, are also shown in Table 1 (county is marked with **). See projections in related section.

Per capita personal income (PCPI) is the most comprehensive measure of individual economic well-being. PCPI estimates are developed/updated annually for counties, metros, states and the U.S. PCPI estimates for this metro, updated in November 2014, are shown in Table 2, below, in context of related personal income measures. See related county PCPI interactive table.

Among all 917 metros for which the PCPI was estimated, this metro was ranked number 404 in 2008 and 498 in 2013. The PCPI changed from $34,032 in 2008 to $36,525 in 2013, a change of $2,493 (7.33%). See more about PCPI and related measures in Table 2 below.
