Redefining MSAs: OMB's Call for Comments
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) requests public comment on the recommendations it has received from the Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Area Standards Review Committee for changes to OMB's metropolitan and micropolitan statistical area standards. The proposed changes will impact MSA delineations. The deadline for comment is March 19, 2021. (Check out the comment page here.)
Given the potential impact this will have on the collection of federal statistics, as well as state and local research efforts, this survey seeks to gather information on the intention of agencies and organizations to submit comments.
