Summary of Deposits Definition
Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA)

The Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) are based on the 2010 Census. These areas correspond to the state / county / CBSA relationships as defined by the Census Bureau. For the purpose of the Summary of Deposits, MSAs reflect only the CBSA codes for metropolitan areas. Micropolitan Areas and Metropolitan Divisions are excluded from the MSA definition, however, all of the MSA related fields (see table below) are available in the SOD database and download.

MSA Listings - Please note that all of the Summary of Deposit data on-line, back to 1994, have been repopulated based on these definitions codes. The following variables are available for each branch office:

Defining Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Areas

Metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas (metro and micro areas) are geographic entities defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for use by Federal statistical agencies in collecting, tabulating, and publishing Federal statistics. The term "Core Based Statistical Area (CBSA)" is a collective term for both metro and micro areas. A metro area contains a core urban area of 50,000 or more population, and a micro area contains an urban core of at least 10,000 (but less than 50,000) population. Each metro or micro area consists of one or more counties and includes the counties containing the core urban area, as well as any adjacent counties that have a high degree of social and economic integration (as measured by commuting to work) with the urban core.

The 2010 standards provide that each CBSA must contain at least one urban area of 10,000 or more population
