Combined Statistical Area

A Combined Statistical Area (CSA) is a grouping of adjacent metropolitan and/or micropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) in the United States and Puerto Rico. The United States Office of Management and Budget (OMB) defines combined statistical areas based on social and economic ties measured by commuting patterns between adjacent MSAs. The areas that combine retain their own designations as metropolitan or micropolitan statistical areas within the larger combined statistical area. The primary distinguishing factor between a CSA and an MSA is that the social and economic ties between the individual MSAs within a CSA are at lower levels than between the counties within an MSA.

As of December 2009, there are 128 combined statistical areas in the United States and Puerto Rico. For a complete list of the 125 combined statistical areas of the United States, see the List of United States combined statistical areas.

Famous quotes containing the words area and/or combined:

    Prosperous farmers mean more employment, more prosperity for the workers and the business men of ... every industrial area in the whole country.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    We are all aware that speech, like chemistry, has a structure. There is a limited set of elements—vowels and consonants—and these are combined to produce words which, in turn, compound into sentences.
    Roger Brown (b. 1925)
