Metropolitan divisions were once called PMSAs(Primary Metropolitan Statistical Area). St Paul and Minneapolis have NEVER been separated like Dallas and Ft Worth, or SF and Oakland, each of those 4 were separate PMSAs but part of the same CMSA(what CSAs used to be called).

That all changed in 2001 when certain PMSAs became Metropolitan Divisions of newly formed MSAs.

In some instances, I prefer the old PMSAs because they give identity to places like Oakland-which otherwise are overshadowed in statistical gathering by larger, more famous cities(namely SF-LOL)

A thread with GDP growth by MSA for the 2000-2009 (or CSA) would be great

I'm thinkning one way to figure out the division of St.Paul and Minneapolis is to look at the county lines for association. I'm assuming Minneapolis and St. Paul are in separate counties. If they are, look at county commuting patterns. Whichever counties associate with Minneapolis more should get associate with it, and vice versa for St. Paul. Or you could associate population and GDP percentages to each city. For example, if county X Has 56% commute to Minneapolis and 42% to St. Paul. Then 56% of the population and GDP goes to Minneapolis and 42% goes to St. Paul.
