State and Regional Decision-Making Information

Organized on a state-by-state basis, use tools and geographic, demographic and economic data resources in these sections to facilitate planning and analysis. Updated frequently, these sections provide a unique means to access to multi-sourced data to develop insights into patterns, characteristics and trends on wide-ranging issues. Bookmark the related main Web page; keep up-to-date.

Using these Resources
Knowing “where we are” and “how things have changed” are key factors in knowing about the where, when and how of future change — and how that change might impact you. There are many sources of this knowledge. Often the required data do not knit together in an ideal manner. Key data are available for different types of geography, become available at different points in time and are often not the perfect subject matter. These sections provide access to relevant data and a means to consume the data more effectively than might otherwise be possible. Use these data, tools and resources in combination with other data to perform wide-ranging data analytics. See examples.

Combined Statistical Areas Demographic Trends

.. Combined Statistical Areas are aggregates of adjacent metropolitan areas; they are groups of contiguous counties that have demographic-economic affinity. These 166 areas are important in market research and development for several reasons. Based on the 2015 population estimate, these areas include 244.1 million population of the total U.S. population of 321.4 million (76 percent). CSAs are at least two adjacent metropolitan areas — reflecting a larger and broader market area. Due to their size (of many), it is often possible to develop more detailed custom demographic-economic estimates and projections than at the county or metropolitan area level. See more below about CSA definitions and relation to other geography.

25 Largest CSAs based on 2015 Total Population
The following graphic shows the largest 25 CSAs based on the latest 2015 official population estimates. The intervals/colors are depicted in legend panel at left of map window. Create custom maps similar to this view for your regions of interest. Use the GIS project/datasets to examine alternative patterns such as percent change for different time periods. Set queries to include CSAs by peer group. Click graphic for larger view with more detail; expand browser window for best quality view.

This section provides an overview of recent demographic trends among CSAs and provides access to tools to further examine these areas, markets, and demographic-economic-business related characteristics. Use the interactive table below to examine patterns and relationships among CSAs of interest. Use the GIS project and datasets described below to examine CSAs in a mapping and geospatial analysis context.

As an example, the Houston CSA is comprised of the Houston MSA and four adjacent MISAs — Bay City, Brenham, El Campo and Huntsville — four relatively small metros. Compare this to the Los Angeles CSA — the “old 5-county LA metro” — comprised of three adjacent MSAs — Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura and Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario. The Los Angeles CSA is the second largest CSA (based on population) and more than twice the size of the 3rd largest CSA — Chicago. Use the interactive table below to examine relationships among CSAs. Click the ShowAll button then the CSA Only button to rank/compare CSAs. Click the ShowAll button then select the CSA by code button to examine the metro and county components of a specific CSA of interest.

Examining Population Components of Change
Population change can be examined in terms of components of change. There are three components of change: births, deaths, and migration. The change in the population from births and deaths is often combined and referred to as natural increase or natural change. Populations grow or shrink depending on if they gain people faster than they lose them. Examining a region’s unique combination of natural change and migration provides insights into why its population is changing and how quickly the change is occurring.
