Micropolitan Statistical Areas are defined as having 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. The MSA codes are 5 digits in length, falling within the 10000 to 59999 range, which replaces the 4-digit code previously used.
