I see that Pascagoula (Jackson County)has been removed from Biloxi's metro ? I noticed that they were left out of the name.

Baldwin is so large that really only the eastern shore should be included. Someone in the Foley area would be just as likely to commute to Pensacola as they would Mobile.

They don’t split counties. You know Pensacola pulls less than 5% of Baldwin County workforce. I thought it would be higher. The job growth in gulf shores and orange beach keeps it out of mobile metro. Eastern shore cities have a +60% commuter rate into mobile. There is an argument to be made that the eastern shore and mobile are a contiguous urban area making mobile and Baldwin counties both core counties.

Yup ... I wonder if aldot ever thought about another bridge in the southern portion of the bay around fairhope to Theodore via hollingers island. pretty sure there’s more money that lives in that area (dog river) than fairhope, just in case if ppl are like we don’t want those peasants to have easier access to the eastern shore

will be interesting to see if commuting patterns continue to be the methodology for calculating metropolitan areas in the decades to come, particularly with more and more people working from home rather than commuting into a city center, which we've seen accelerate this year due to COVID.

Commuting patterns probably will never change if ppl have to drive that far north to access I 10 ( foley fairhope gs etc. ) to commute to mobile . I don’t think covid will have that kind of lasting impact. I see it being more political than anything plus over the years better vaccines will emerge.

Yup they are their own msa now. What’s interesting to me with that is Jackson county’s major employers outside of hospitals and schools are chevron, ingalls and vt halter marine which account for approx 15 - 16 k jobs.
Approximately 6-7k commute to Jackson county from mobile daily. Hmmm I wonder where those people coming from Mobile are working ? And approx 1500 commute from Jackson to mobile.
