US All Metro/Micro AreasDirections
Name all US Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Areas in the 50 states. They are typically named after the largest city but occasionally with a 2nd or 3rd largest city, which are also accepted answers – also this central ‘city’ may be a town, village, CDP, etc. The OMB defines a Core Based Statistical Area as one or more adjacent counties or county equivalents that have at least one urban core area of at least 10,000 population, plus adjacent territory that has a high degree of social and economic integration with the core as measured by commuting ties.
Despite being listed as the second city in the mSA, Fort Walton Beach doesn’t trigger the answer.
Interesting how your source put a relatively obscure and unincorporated place as the principal city for the one in Martha’s Vineyard. I’ll bet many people will be tripped up by that, especially those who don’t know the area.
That is the official name of the area, for some reason. I don’t know why it isn’t Oak Bluffs
the actual name per the census is what it is named in this quiz.
