Bye, Bismarck: 144 cities could lose status as metro areas
By The Associated Press - | Mar 7, 2021
FILE - In this Sept. 29, 2019 file photo, a pedestrian crosses Front Street under snowfall in Missoula, Mont. Under a new proposal, a metro area would have to have at least 100,000 people to count as an MSA, double the 50,000-person threshold that has been in place for the past 70 years. Cities formerly designated as metros with core populations between 50,000 and 100,000 people would be changed to “micropolitan" statistical areas instead. (Ben Allan Smith/The Missoulian via AP)
