I don't know why they don't combine metro statistics between these two cities as it's pretty much urban all the way between both cities.

Outside of the 275 loop, you have Fairfield, Hamilton, Mason, West Chester, Trenton, Middletown, Monroe, Franklin, Springboro and then you're right into the Dayton metro.

They should just call it Cin-Day and combine the two for e-peen status.

The "two cities" are fifty miles apart.

Yeah, but the two metropolitan areas are contiguous. I think that is what the OP is referring to, and they wouldn't be the only ones to point out the obvious.

Baltimore and Washington are 40 miles apart. They are one metro area

Lather, rinse, repeat ... It's been days since we've touched on this tired topic.

Another CSA vs. MSA argument?

Hi lovesthebass--

It's only a matter of time (a few years, possibly 15 at most) before the Census Bureau finally recognizes Cin-Day as a combined metro area. Starting in West Chester (near Union Centre), it's quicker and easier to get north to Miamisburg and the Dayton Mall during rush hour than it is to get south to Cincinnati, due to the latter's traffic congestion.

I'm in the middle of doing a market research report and you can be damned sure I'm combining the Cin-Day metro area into one report. I've already determined the go/no-go areas, and the "go" areas (warranting more research) is almost entirely focused on the strip between 275 and 675, between Union Centre and Austin Landing.

It is all about making Dayton seem larger than it is and a boost to the psyche of Daytonians. Can't tell you how many times I heard about this when I lived in Dayton.

Does it make any difference at the end of the day? Not really. Just looks good on paper, that's all.

This has been going on since the 1970s or earlier.

This book:

Close-Up: How to Read the American City, Clay

..came out in the ealry 1970s, and in it the author makes an example of a similar push at that time..."Megacity 70-75"....which was an earlier marketing ploy pitching Dayton as good central location.

The author provides a map from the marketing campaign showing the couties and populations or incomes around the intersection of I-75/I-70 and comments how this was a good example of distorting the truth with maps since the map example omitted all mention of the much larger Cincinnati in one of the counties shown.
