Metro 2000-2020 Estimates & Projections Datasets
Order the estimates & projections for use on your computer. The CSV file may be opened with Excel and used with most spreadsheet and analytical software. The CSV file provides annual data for the period 2000 to 2020. The estimates and projections are a part of the ProximityOne Situation & Outlook program. More detailed demographic subject matter are available; demographics for smaller area geography (census tracts) are also part of this program. Data presented in the ranking table are intended for end use in this medium only.

Metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas, metro/MSA and micro/MISA, are geographic entities defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget for use by federal statistical agencies in collecting, tabulating, and publishing federal statistics. Metro and micro areas are collectively known as core based statistical areas (CBSAs). A metro area contains a core urban area population of 50,000 or more. A micro area contains a core urban area population of at least 10,000 (but less than 50,000). Each metro or micro area consists of one or more counties and includes the counties containing the core urban area, as well as any adjacent counties that have a high degree of social and economic integration (as measured by commuting to work) with the urban core.

Additional Information
Proximity develops geographic-demographic-economic data and analytical tools and helps organizations knit together and use diverse data in a decision-making and analytical framework. We develop custom demographic/economic estimates and projections, develop geographic and geocoded address files, and assist with impact and geospatial analyses. Wide-ranging organizations use our tools (software, data, methodologies) to analyze their own data integrated with other data.
