A document has surfaced which shows all the new CSA and MSA boundaries. Interesting that they decided to add Stateboro, but leave out Jasper and Beaufort Counties in SC.

I was half expecting the new Hilton Head-Bluffton-Beaufort MSA to be lumped in as well.

I thought that the CSA meant Confrederate States of American. And then they started talking about New England. That confused me for a minute.

I wonder how much $$$$$$ this bunch of blah cost the taxpayers.

This is great news. It's about freakin' time! It is quite far, but I've personally always known at least one person that commutes in either direction between Savannah and Statesboro.

It deserves a spot in Savannah's CSA (as in Combined Statistical Area). It still boggles me why the Hilton Head-Beaufort MSA isn't a part of Savannah's CSA. There are a good number of commuters from South Carolina into Savannah.

Apparently not enough. Neither Beaufort or Jasper counties is among the top three counties with the most commuters into Chatham County: Where Americans go to work - The Washington Post

I think the relatively high proportion of retirees in the Hilton Head-Beaufort area is what's preventing its inclusion in the Savannah CSA. They may be coming into Savannah for amenities and such, but they're not coming to work.

Just out of curiosity, what is the significance of this?

Let me first say I DON"T KNOW THE ANSWER to your question. But, I have an opinion. I believe that actions like this are for polictical gain for the party that enacts the action. I believe that combined numbers such as these are used for "redistricting" in order that the voting public of that district will swing to a local agenda.


Disclaimer: Note the works "I believe" and "this is my opinion" . I will wait to hear from other poster that are a lot smarter than than I am on subjects such as this.

I just read the first few pages and copied out one half-paragraph. Maybe later I'll read some more. (Yuck)

Seems it is mostly about commuting and its resulting social and economic integration, as WanderingImport mentioned.


"Metropolitan Statistical Areas have at least one urbanized area of 50,000 or more population, plus adjacent territory that has a high degree of social and economic integration with the core as measured by commuting ties. Micropolitan Statistical Areas have at least one urban cluster of at least 10,000 but less than 50,000 population, plus adjacent territory that has a high degree of social and economic integration with the core as measured by commuting ties."
