No, these CSAs/MSAs are determined by commuting patterns AND county boundaries. First of all, the reason that Butler and Warren counties aren't part of the Dayton metro area is because more of the workers commute to Cincinnati than Dayton. Second of all, if Dayton was in an adjacent county to Hamilton County, it would already be part of the Cincinnati CSA and/or MSA, even at 55 miles away.

Thanks for the data. I guess this explains why Cincy traffic is so bad. As a student at UC there were more than a couple times where I was leaving campus for holidays etc. and had the misfortune of heading up I-71 around 5 o'clock. There are few times I can remember being so annoyed by something as driving I-71 during rush hour. They desperately need an extra lane or something.

I have a friend who lives in the Miami Twp area but whose employer is at 7th and Walnut. She doesn't even bother with I-71 instead opting to take I-275 all the way down into Kentucky and jumping on 471 north.

The bad thing is, I-71 is pretty much a cakewalk compared to I-75; relatively speaking of course. And holiday traffic on 75 is a big headache, especially heading south from Hopple to pretty much all the way down through Florence. Traffic is already bad enough during rush hour on 75 and 71/75 in KY on a typical weekday, and the holidays only exacerbates it.

It looks like Daytonnati is not going to happen this year.

And when you see what was added to the Cleveland CSA and the Columbus CSA/MSA, it's quite obvious to me that SW Ohio got screwed!!!

Just curious what you mean by "was added" and if you can elaborate on how SW Ohio got the shaft?

The Cleveland area added Canton's MSA, New Philly, Sandusky, and Norwalk to its' CSA.

The Columbus area added 2 or 3 counties to its' MSA and Zanesville, Cambridge and Bellefontaine to its' CSA.

The Cincinnati area only added Maysville KY to its' CSA, while many thought Dayton/Springfield would be added.

As a result, the Cleveland CSA now has 3.5 million people, and the Columbus CSA is now slightly larger than the Cincinnati CSA.

My point is that given what was done to the Cleveland and Columbus areas, and other regions across the country, Cincinnati and Dayton should have merged!!

It's now obvious to me how completely irrelevant CSAs really are. Zanesville is a part of Columbus!?! Whatever.

Why all the talk about Butler and Warren Counties when the main reason for such skewed numbers is Kentucky? If it weren't for the state border running right next to downtown, Cincinnati itself would have a population of 400,000 people by including Covington, Newport, Bellevue, Dayton, Ludlow and probably significant parts of Ft. Thomas, Park Hills, and other NKY communities within the city limits.

Careful now, common sense is not tolerated on these forums.
