*FHFA uses the revised Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) as announced by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). These MSAs are based on Census data. According to OMB, an MSA comprises the central county or counties containing the core, plus adjacent outlying counties having a high degree of social and economic integration with the central county as measured through commuting.
