Texas Metropolitan Status by County (Historical Designation)

Loading...

Metropolitan Areas in this table were defined in 2007 by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Since the 1950 census the OMB has created the metropolitan designation for statistical purposes.

Metropolitan Areas are characterized by a central urban area surrounded by other urban areas that work together economically or socially. The central urban area must have a population of at least 50,000 people with a combined regional population of 100,000.

77 of the 254 counties in Texas are currently defined as metropolitan counties. In 2006, they accounted for over 87% of the population in Texas.

The Texarkana MSA includes Miller County in Arkansas. For this information page we only included population data for Texas counties.

The Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington MSA is one of 11 MSAs in the country that can be broken down into Metropolitan Divisions. Metropolitan Divisions have a core population of at least 2.5 million and maintain social and economic identities. Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas were replaced by Metropolitan Divisions in 2000.
