In Oregon, we have Urban Growth Boundaries, without them the two urban metros would look similar. I would definitely consider Cincinnati and Dayton to be in the same MSA. Though that is purely based on what I see on the internet and not so much for what is actually going on there in the economic sense.

I have only barely driven through there once, so yes, that is the extent of my input I can give on this topic. Those in Ohio should be able to give this conversation more detail than I can.

Its not just along i75. Think of Monroe Middletown Lebanon Franklin or Springboro which is actually part of Dayton. It's not just on i75

exactly; Rt 4, Rt 25, I75, 741, I71/Rt 48 are all populated corridors connecting the two metro areas.

Well, all but Lebanon are along I-75, thanks to annexation. None are "actually part of Dayton".

It's hilarious that Dayton's southernmost suburbs are in the "Cincinnati MSA". Their city news paper is located outside their own metro area.

At minimum census bureau should split Warren and Butler counties up into sections for sections where people commute more to one city or the other.

Its like they are so close physically but psychologically very far part. I think if the region had a light or heavy commuter rail transit system linking the 2 cities there would be a greater integration of the region economically and culturally as it would make easier to commute for work and entertainment purposes. I worked with people who commuted from Dayton to work in the Cincy metro area and the I-75 commute with its traffic headaches was a very big negative factor. The High School sports teams from the region especially in Butler and Warren counties play in the same Athletic sports leagues. When I was in High School just about 2 or 3 miles from the Cincinnati city limits about 70% of are away games was actually in the city of Dayton. The TV and radio media market overlaps and you only realize you're listening or watching an Dayton area TV or radio station is when the commercial advertisements come on.
