State and Metro Area Employment, Hours, & Earnings

Non‐standard CES areas

When metropolitan areas cross state boundaries, the state with the largest share of employment is referred to as the controlling state for the MSA; that is, it collects the relevant area data from the other state(s) and sums it to produce the final estimate value for the MSA. However, there are a few MSAs and Metropolitan Divisions where the non-controlling state’s part represents a very significant percentage of the state’s total statewide employment. In these cases the non-controlling states were interested in having a separate estimate for its portion because of its importance to the state. If the intrastate portion has an employment size of at least 250,000 and represents at least 15% of total statewide employment, acceptable estimates can be made for intrastate parts, and the parts sum to derive the official interstate definition.

Besides these intrastate portions of MSAs and Metropolitan Divisions, CES is continuing to publish estimates for Baltimore City, Md.; New York City, N.Y.; and Philadelphia City, Pa.
