Metropolitan Area Census Data: Population & Housing Density

Source: U.S. Census Bureau 2000 Census.

The metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) are listed alphabetically, with some exceptions. Use this alphabetical index to jump down to the area you are interested in: B   C   D   EFG   HIJK   L   MNO   PR   S   TUVWY   Puerto Rico

Some large MSAs are arranged into two or more Primary MSAs (PMSAs) within a Consolidated MSA (CMSA). In this case the PMSAs are not in alphabetical order, but are grouped under the CMSA. To find a PMSA, check the larger CMSA that it is a part of. For example, the Akron, OH PMSA can be found under the Cleveland/Akron, OH CMSA, along with other MSAs beginning with 'C'. Or, use your browser's Find function (Edit -> Find, or Control-F) to search for these areas. See below for more information about MSAs, CMSAs, and PMSAs.

Reading the Chart:

The chart show statistics for 356 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) as defined by the Census Bureau. See below for definitions. Note that MSAs cover larger areas than city limits. Some of the larger MSAs are arranged as two or more Primary MSAs included in a Consolidated MSA. Note that for the population and housing unit columns, the numbers in the PMSA table cells add up the to the total in the corresponding CMSA table cell.

*Puerto Rico is not an MSA but is included here to provide contest for the MSAs it contains.

The entries under the Area in square miles headings are areas.

The entries under the Population and Housing Units headings are totals.

The Density per square mile of land area values are derived by dividing the population (or housing unit) count by the land ares. For example, dividing the total US population of 281,421,906 by the total land area of 3,537,438.44 gives a density value of 79.6 people per square mile.

In this chart the length of all of the colored bars represent percentages of the highest value of any MSA. For example, the MSA with the highest population (namely New York) has a colored bar that fills the cell. An MSA with half that many people will have a colored bar that fills half the cell. For small percentages the bar does not appear.

Please note that if you set your browser to display very large text sizes, the table cell sizes will change, and the lengths of the colored bars will not be accurate, although they will still show proportions.

Census Department definitions:

The general concept of a metropolitan area (MA) is one of a large population nucleus, together with adjacent communities that have a high degree of economic and social integration with that nucleus. Some MAs are defined around two or more nuclei.
Metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) are metropolitan areas (MAs) that are not closely associated with other MAs. These areas typically are surrounded by nonmetropolitan counties (county subdivisions in New England).
If an area that qualifies as a metropolitan area (MA) has 1 million people or more, two or more primary metropolitan statistical areas (PMSAs) may be defined within it. Each PMSA consists of a large urbanized county or cluster of counties (cities and towns in New England) that demonstrate very strong internal economic and social links, in addition to close ties to other portions of the larger area. When PMSAs are established, the larger MA of which they are component parts is designated a consolidated metropolitan statistical area (CMSA). CMSAs and PMSAs are established only where local governments favor such designations for a large MA.
