This poster-size data sheet presents population estimates and selected demographic indicators for the nation's 281 metropolitan areas. These areas are divided into 261 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and 20 Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Areas (CMSAs), reporting units which replace the Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs) used by the United States Office of Management and Budget until 1980. In addition, 71 Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas (PMSAs) are listed under their respective CMSAs. PMSAs are composed of relatively independent counties or groups of counties within a CMSA. The following population estimates for each metropolitan area are reported: (1) resident population, July 1, 1986; (2) resident population, April 1, 1980; (3) population change, 1980-86; (4) percentage of population change, 1980-86; (5) percentage of Black residents, 1980; (6) percentage of residents of Spanish origin, 1980; (7) infant mortality rate, 1982; (8) unemployment rate, 1986; and per capita income, 1983. The following indicators are reported for the 30 most populous and the 10 least populous metropolitan areas: (1) percent of change in population, 1980-86; (2) percent of change in population aged 65 years and older, 1980; (3) percent of residents born outside of the state, 1980; and (4) percent of residents below the poverty level, 1979. A map illustrates patterns of population growth in the metropolitan areas, 1980-86. (FMW)
