City Forward

City Forward Data Sets include info like:

Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA) - Geographic entities defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for use by Federal statistical agencies in collecting, tabulating, and publishing Federal statistics. The standards for defining the areas are reviewed and revised once every ten years, prior to each decennial census. Generally, the areas are redefined using the most recent set of standards following each decennial census. Between censuses, the definitions are updated annually to reflect the most recent Census Bureau population estimates. Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas (PMSA) - Used to refer to an urbanized county or set of counties with strong social and economic ties to neighboring communities within a Metropolitan Statistical Area that has one million-plus populations. Larger Urban Zone (LUZ) - Approximation of the functional urban zone centred around the town/ city, developed and defined by the European Union's statistical agency, Eurostat.
