The Changing Demographic and Economic Structure of Nonmetropolitan Areas in the United States Author: Kevin F. McCarthy Subject: Examines the renewed population growth in nonmetropolitan areas in the s, which has shaken many of the presumptions that shaped the nation's regional development policies in the past.

The United States Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has defined metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) for the United States, including eight for Puerto Rico.

The OMB defines a Metropolitan Statistical Area as one or more adjacent counties or county equivalents that have at least one urban core area of at le population, plus adjacent territory that has a high degree of social. In recent years, there has been growing interest in the phenomenon of an apparent population distribution reversal in the United States.

Changes in the definitions of MA’s since the census have consisted chiefly of (1) the recognition of new areas as they reached the minimum required city or area population; and (2) the addition of counties or New En-gland cities and towns to existing.

Regional scientists, demographers, human geographers, and researchers in other disciplines have studied the mechanism and driving factors of population change and found a variety of factors that cause the changes (see [8, 16] for a review of the literature).In many studies, these factors are chosen by a specific disciplinary perspective rather than an Cited by: 6.
