1983 New England Metropolitan Areas (NECMAs)
NOTE: MSAs in New England are defined based on cities and towns, not counties. NECMA codes are the county version of the New England areas and are defined on the basis of the New England CMSAs (not PMSAs). They do not replace the MSAs. MSA and NECMA definitions are not identical in county composition. See Statistical Abstract of the United States, 1988, published by the Bureau of the Census, for further discussion of the definition of metropolitan statistical areas. New England cases in the 1983?87 geocode data files are treated as missing on all area of residence variables, due to this non-comparability. See Appendix 10: Geocode Documentation for further discussion.
BOSTON-LAWRENCE-SALEM-LOWELL-BROCKTON, MA (Cambridge, Framingham, Gloucester, Haverhill, Lynn, Waltham)
*Add Crawford Cty., MO (part of Sullivan City in Crawford Cty.) Add Jersey Cty., IL
Add Harvey Cty.
*NOTE: These recent changes are not reflected in the 1987 City Reference File (CRF). Therefore, any variable creation which uses only the MSA designation from the 1987 CRF data file will treat these counties as non-metropolitan.
