In the United States, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has produced a formal definition of metropolitan areas, which are organized around county boundaries.
As of February 2005, there is now an additional classification, that of a “Metropolitan Division.” The term Metropolitan Division is used to refer to a county or group of counties within a Metropolitan Statistical Area that has a population core of at least 2.5 million.
While a Metropolitan Division is a subdivision of a larger Metropolitan Statistical Area, it often functions as a distinct social, economic, and cultural area within the larger region.

 Census Bureau to Track Both Metro and 'Micropolitan' Areas   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Since the 1950s, the OMB has defined a metropolitan statistical area (MSA) as an urban core of at least 50,000 people, the county in which it is located, and adjacent counties linked by commuting.
Metropolitan and micropolitan areas are known together as "core based statistical areas." Only 7 percent live in counties not linked to any urban area or urban cluster, termed "outside core based statistical areas."
An outlying county is economically tied to a metropolitan or micropolitan area when 25 percent of its residents work in the central city or, conversely, when 25 percent of the jobs in the outlying county are filled by workers from the central county or counties.
