  • Riverside County, California (Los Angeles and Palm Springs DMAs)
  • Solano County, California (Sacramento and San Francisco DMAs)

  • Nicollet County, Minnesota (Minneapolis-St Paul and Mankato DMAs)
  • Lea County, New Mexico (Albuquerque-Santa Fe and Odessa-Midland DMAs)
  • Oneida County, New York (Utica and Syracuse DMAs)
It would make sense for everything from Eloy to the Pima County line to be part of the Tucson DMA instead of Phoenix.
This falls in the "who cares" department.

I'm not a big TV fan, so like you I don't care either. But PJ is right since Phoenix is as much like Tucson as LA is like Vegas.

I am a big TV fan, but don't care what Nielsen does. That said, I agree with you about the analogy. Back to topic!

People I know in Tucson consider Casa Grande to be part of the greater Phoenix area.

LOL Tumamoc, after living in Casa Grande for over 5 years, I think most here might think the same

Maricopa, which isn't far from Casa Grande, is definitely part of the greater Phoenix area.

I'd say that Casa Grande shares more in common with Phoenix than Tucson.

Just for some perspective from those of us in the north...

Casa Grande is part of mexico, anything southwest of Phoenix is Tucson and is populated by anti-gun communists from California who came here to destroy our state. And Phoenix itself is a dusty war zone of cartel gang violence, kidnappings and car theft barely held in check by Sheriff Joe.

Jamies is totally correct in what he is saying about Arizona. Arizona is a criminal enterprise. The only state in the United States that is more of a criminal enterprise than Arizona in New Mexico which is actually far more worse than Arizona. New Mexico is actually 5th world. Politicians in Arizona have been able to cover up the real problems that we have here with crime here in Arizona. The Sinaloa Cartel are the real leaders here in Arizona. The sad thing is that as bad as Arizona is well New Mexico is a hundred times worse. We should go ahead and give New Mexico to Mexico because New Mexico is that bad. The State of Arizona has some nice areas and some rich residents who have been able to keep it afloat. My concern with Arizona is that one day we might become like New Mexico. New Mexico is really really bad and the State of New Mexico is much much worse than many part of Mexico.

The State of Arizona still has a chance however the State of New Mexico is most corrupt criminal enterprise ever.

Pinal County is huge. In fact, parts of Pinal County are considered part of the Tucson metropolitan area. Only certain portions of Pinal are considered to be a part of the Phoenix metro, not the entire county for obvious reasons.

Casa Grande is not considered to be a part of either metro. The only people who think Casa Grande is a part of the Phoenix metro are people from Casa Grande. No intelligent person could argue it is a part of the Phoenix metro when it's not even in the same county (Maricopa) and it's 30 miles south of the Valley's southern most border (southern tip of Chandler). It would be one thing if Casa Grande bordered Chandler to the south but when you have an additional 30 miles of empty non-developed space between Chandler and Casa Grande, how can any intelligent person think that is part of the same metropolitan area??? What's next, are we going to start saying Prescott is part of the Phoenix metro too now?
