U.S. CORE BASED STATISTICAL AREAs (CBSAs)

Adding U.S. Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) to your map can profoundly impact how you analyze regional data and optimize your business strategies. CBSA analysis is crucial for gaining deep insights into regional dynamics and optimizing operational strategies.

By visualizing these designated regions, which encompass both metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas, you can pinpoint emerging market trends, streamline logistical operations, and tailor marketing efforts to specific urban and suburban demographics. This capability empowers businesses across various sectors, including Sales, Marketing, Dispatch, Logistics, Service & Maintenance, and Operations, to make data-driven decisions that drive growth and efficiency. Dive into the transformative potential of CBSA mapping! Let’s create your map of U.S. Core Based Statistical Areas now.

WHAT ARE U.S. CORE BASED STATISTICAL AREAS (CBSAs)?

U.S. Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) are geographic regions defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as a geographic area consisting of one or more counties with an urban center with a population of not less than 10,000. Each area has adjoining counties that are connected to the urban center by commuting. These areas encompass metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas, providing a standardized framework for regional analysis.

An area can be considered as CBSA if it has one of these characteristics:

  • Metropolitan Statistical Areas with at least 50,000 population or more
  • Micropolitan Statistical Area with at least 10,000 – 50,000 in population
  • Combined Statistical Area combining adjacent Metropolitan or Micropolitan areas

Leverage a U.S. CBSA map to refine your sales territories, tailor marketing campaigns to urban demographics, or enhance your serivce and delivery efficiency. This type of map is a fantastic resource for tapping into new regional insights that drive strategic decision-making.
