^It's cross directional commuters of at least 15%. EG. Dayton MSA commuters to the Cincinnati MSA could be 11% and the Cincinnati MSA to the Dayton MSA could be 4% to make it happen.

The 15% interchange has to occur between Hamilton County and Montgomery County. There is already 15% interchange between the two MSA's. After all, they border each other!!!

Think about it. Montgomery County (Dayton MSA) borders Warren and Butler Counties (Cincinnati MSA). If the 15% interchange requirement involved bordering counties instead of the two core counties (Hamilton and Montgomery), the two MSAs would have been combined a long time ago, because I'm sure the interchange between the bordering counties is much higher than 15%!!

As far as the source is concerned, I'll look through the info from the OMB and if I find it, I'll provide the link.

^ You just contradicted yourself. Early you said from Montgomery to Hamilton county only.

Commuter interaction between Hamilton and Montgomery must be rather low. But once you throw Butler and Warren in there it is a different ball game. I personally think there is enough separation between Cincinnati and Dayton to not classify them as a single metro, but the gap is narrowing.

Those who want to classify them as a single metro I do not quite understand. What is the emphasis? Sell the area as a single entity nationally? I would hate to think I had been sold on that idea only to find out I really had to choose between Cincinnati and Dayton. Let each stand on its own until the natural evolution makes them one, which has not happened yet.

Though this entire thread is full of speculation, I don't think there is any way this could be speculative, at best.

Combining the metros would mean more money from the feds, higher rankings (greater prominence) on lists, potentially leading to more investments by businesses (e.g. those looking for a big test market or media market).

It might result in more regional-focused planning.

To imagine it only from the perspective of someone looking to make a move to the region is missing, well, pretty much everything significant about it.

The higher ranked you are the better the chances are to fund large transportation projects like Commuter rail.
