Question

Status:Closed    Asked:Sep 25, 2018 - 02:05 PM

I am searching for a non-GIS map of showing boundaries of PUMAs that comprise 2010 MSAs

IPUMS used to publish PDF maps showing the PUMAs that comprise MSAs. I can't seem to find these any more. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's possible we once provided something like the PDF maps you describe, but I'm pretty sure we haven't for at least the last 5 years.


Here are the most relevant alternative information sources I know of:

-- Crosswalks between PUMAs and 2013 MSAs (in Excel format) are available at the bottom of the MET2013 variable description.

-- Our online map of 2000 and 2010 PUMA boundaries supplies county information if you click on any PUMA.

-- The Census Bureau supplies Delineation Files and Reference Maps that identify which counties comprise each MSA. You could use these in combination with the online PUMA map to determine which PUMAs correspond with which MSAs.


I'd also note that no IPUMS USA variables are associated directly with "2010 MSAs". The METAREA variable is based on 1999 MSA definitions for 2000-2011 samples, and the MET2013 variable is based on 2013 MSA definitions.
