  ESRI Business Information Solutions - Services & Solutions - Defining a Study Area
New metropolitan and micropolitan statistical area definitions were announced by the United States Office of Management and Budget on June 6, 2003, based on application of the 2000 standards with Census 2000 data.
Micropolitan statistical areas are a new set of statistical areas that have at least one urban cluster of at least 10,000 but less than 50,000 population, plus adjacent territory that has a high degree of social and economic integration with the core as measured by commuting ties.
Each state is responsible for establishing districts that are as equal in population as practicable for the purpose of electing representatives.

 Kentucky State Data Center
The United States Office of Management and Budget (OMB) defines metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas according to published standards that are applied to Census Bureau data.
The general concept of a metropolitan or micropolitan statistical area is that of a core area containing a substantial population nucleus, together with adjacent communities having a high degree of economic and social integration with that core.
The term "metropolitan area" (MA) was adopted in 1990 and referred collectively to metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs), consolidated metropolitan statistical areas (CMSAs), and primary metropolitan statistical areas (PMSAs).

 ERS/USDA Briefing Room - Measuring Rurality: Rual-Urban Commuting Area Codes
Micropolitan and small town cores (codes 4 and 7, respectively) are tract equivalents of urban clusters.
Many micropolitan and small town cores themselves (and even a few metropolitan cores) have high enough out-commuting to other cores to be coded 2, 5, or 8; typically these areas are not job centers themselves but serve as bedroom communities for a nearby, larger city.
It is based on an overlay of ZIP code areas on census tracts and not on a separate analysis of population and commuting data unique to the ZIP code geographic unit.

 ERS/USDA Briefing Room - Measuring Rurality: What is a micropolitan area?
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) was urged by various sources in the last decade to delineate the entire land surface of the country into areas, and not leave the territory outside of metro areas as an undifferentiated residual.
As with metro areas, outlying counties are included if commuting to the central county is 25 percent or higher, or if 25 percent of the employment in the outlying county is made up of commuters from the central county.
However, the population in noncore counties grew by 7.9 percent during the 1990s, compared with a growth rate of 9.9 percent in micro areas and 14 percent in metro areas.

 United States micropolitan area - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
United States micropolitan areas, as defined by the Census Bureau and the Office of Management and Budget, are urban areas in the United States based around a core city or town with a population of 10,000 to 49,999.
Micropolitan cities do not have the economic or political importance of large cities, but are nevertheless significant centers of population and production, drawing workers and shoppers from a wide local area.
The largest of the areas, the one whose core city is Torrington, Connecticut, had a population in excess of 180,000 in 2000; Torrington's population in that year's census was only 35,202.

 About Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Areas
Each micropolitan statistical area must have at least one urban cluster of at least 10,000 but less than 50,000 population.
Under the standards, the county (or counties) in which at least 50 percent of the population resides within urban areas of 10,000 or more population, or that contain at least 5,000 people residing within a single urban area of 10,000 or more population, is identified as a "central county" (counties).
The title of each metropolitan or micropolitan statistical area consists of the names of up to three of its principal cities and the name of each state into which the metropolitan or micropolitan statistical area extends.

The areas include census regions and divisions, states, metropolitan areas, metropolitan divisions, micropolitan areas, combined areas, small labor market areas, counties and county equivalents, cities with a population of 25,000 and over, and all cities and towns in New England regardless of population.
Currently defined metropolitan and micropolitan areas are based on the application of the 2000 standards (which appeared in the Federal Register, December 27, 2000, pages 82228-82238) to data from the 2000 Census, as updated using more recent population estimates from the Census Bureau.

 Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Areas
Metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas (metro and micro areas) are geographic entities defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for use by Federal statistical agencies in collecting, tabulating, and publishing Federal statistics.
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.
In defining metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas, OMB does not attempt to anticipate or take into account any nonstatistical uses that may be made of the definitions, nor will OMB modify the definitions to meet the requirements of any nonstatistical program.

 ARC | Research Reports
In 2003, OMB released metro and nonmetro areas from the 2000 Census.
Metro areas were previously defined to include central counties with one or more cities of at least 50,000 residents or with an urbanized area of 50,000 or more and total area population of at least 100,000.
Because of this comprehensiveness, using the census to estimate unemployment by place of residence for small areas is a straightforward exercise of tabulating individual respondents' employment status on the census by their county of residence.

Micropolitan areas were first defined in the 2000 OMB standards and are a differentiation of nonmetropolitan counties into two distinct groups: micropolitan and nonmicropolitan.
A micropolitan statistical area is a nonmetropolitan county or group of contiguous nonmetropolitan counties that contains an urban cluster of 10,000 to 49,999 persons.
A micropolitan statistical area may include surrounding counties if there are strong economic ties between the counties, based on commuting patterns.

 Census Bureau Place Definitions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
A micropolitan area can have one or more counties, and outlying counties are affected by commuting patterns the same way as in a metro area.
Thus, OMB cautions that Metropolitan Statistical Area and Micropolitan Statistical Area definitions should not be used to develop and implement Federal, state, and local nonstatistical programs and policies without full consideration of the effects of using these definitions for such purposes.
These areas should not serve as a general-purpose geographic framework for nonstatistical activities, and they may or may not be suitable for use in program funding formulas.

 Hilton Head Island Area Information
In the 2000 census, the total estimated population was measured at approximately 33,860; but the official town of Hilton Head stretches a bit short of the island itself, excluding a small parcel of land down the William Hilton Parkway (an extension of Highway 278 leading to the island from the mainland).
Thus, the actual island's population was measured at 34,407 in the 2000 census, with a slight increase in land area of.59 square miles.
This 'micropolitan' term was designated to the Hilton Head area after the census, which found Hilton Head to be 64% urban and 36% rural and also included the urban clusters of Beaufort (population 46,128), nearby Bluffton (5,848), and further out Ridgeland (3,616).

Poplar Bluff is considered a Micropolitan Area, a new designation created by the Office of Management Budget, which is an area that has a population of more than 10,000 but less than 50,000 and must include at least one county, Butler County in our case.
These Micropolitans are the regional economic and employment hubs of their areas and provide “big city” benefits on a manageable scale as well as being large enough to attract jobs, restaurants, and community organizations, but small enough to avoid most of the big city problems.
Poplar Bluff is ranked 96th in the United States and 3rd in Missouri in economic output.
