  1. On January 19, 2021, The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) requested pubic comments on recommendations it received from the Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Area Standards Review Committee for changes to OMB's metropolitan and micropolitan statistical area standards. Comments had to be received within 60 days from publication of the notice. (More than 60 days have elapsed since the publication date.) Comments could be sent electronically via www.regulations.gov. The Committee made the following recommendations in their report to OMB for changes to the 2010 metropolitan and micropolitan statistical area standards: (1) The minimum urban area population to qualify as a metropolitan statistical area should be increased from 50,000 to 100,000, (2) The delineation of New England city and town areas (NECTAs), NECTA divisions, and combined NECTAs should be discontinued, (3) Research should be undertaken on an additional, territorially exhaustive classification that covers all of the US and Puerto Rico, (4) The first annual delineation update of the coming decade should be combined with the decennial-based delineations, (5) OMB should make publicly available a schedule for updates to the core based statistical areas, and (6) OMB should continue use of the American Community Survey commuting data in measurement of intercounty connectivity, though changing societal and economic trends may warrant considering changes in the 2030 standards. Under the proposed standards, OMB would release three different type of updates. Annual updates would address the qualification of new metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas. The Five-Year (mid-decade) Update would include, without limitation: (1) qualifications of metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas, (2) merging of adjacent metropolitan or micropolitan statistical areas, and (3) titling of metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas. The Decennial Delineation would include the initial re-delineations following adoption of the revised standards. The release dates for the Decennial Delineation, Annual Updates, and Five-Year Update are as follows: Update type Release date Decennial Delineation June 2023. Annual Update December 2024. Annual Update December 2025. Annual Update December 2026. Annual Update December 2027. Five-Year Update December 2028. Annual Update December 2029. Please note that OMB uses the following criteria / definitions - MSAs are composed of "entire counties". For Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs), the employment interchange measure between counties must be 25% or greater. For Combined Statistical Areas (CSAs), the employment interchange measure between counties must be at least 15% but less than 25%. Where the employment interchange measure is at least 15% but less than 25%, combination of MSAs should occur only if local opinion in both areas is in favor, and that combination should occur automatically if the employment interchange measure equals or exceeds 25%. OMB rules also allow for the consideration of local opinion in the titling of CSAs.

  2. This morning, the U.S. Census Bureau released population estimates for the nation, states and Puerto Rico. The estimates are as of July 1, 2021. Please see tables and a link below. Link: https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-releases/2021/2021-population-estimates.html Excerpt: "The South, with a population of 127,225,329, was the most populous of the four regions (encompassing 38.3% of the total national population) and was the only region that had positive net domestic migration of 657,682 (the movement of people from one area to another within the United States) between 2020 and 2021. The Northeast region, the least populous of the four regions with a population of 57,159,838 in 2021, experienced a population decrease of -365,795 residents due to natural decrease (-31,052) and negative net domestic migration (-389,638). The West saw a gain in population (35,868) despite losing residents via negative net domestic migration (-144,941). Growth in the West was due to natural increase (143,082) and positive net international migration (38,347). Between 2020 and 2021, 33 states saw population increases and 17 states and the District of Columbia lost population, 11 of which had losses of over 10,000 people. This is a historically large number of states to lose population in a year." Table 1.

  4. Today's CBJ "Toyota to bring 1,750 battery plant to North Carolina megasite" by Andy Warfield of the Triad Business Journal Excerpt: "The company that will this afternoon announce a more than $1 billion project at the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite has now been made public. During this morning’s meeting of the North Carolina Department of Commerce Economic Incentives Committee, an entity headed by Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE: TM) — Toyota Battery Manufacturing Inc. — was approved to receive $338 million in Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) funds that were included in the 2022 state budget. Committee members were told during the meeting that North Carolina won out over nine states considered for the project, all of which offered significant economic incentives. Toyota will invest at least $1 billion in the plant and create 1,750 new jobs at the 1,825-acre site just south of the Guilford-Randolph county line. A plan for a second phase of expansion, if the company so chooses, would bring the total investment to more than $3 billion and result in 3,875 total jobs. Toyota has already electrified approximately 25% of its vehicle production, committee members were told, which is only the beginning of its plans for hybrid and battery-electric vehicles. The meeting this morning followed approval of economic incentives by the Randolph Board of County Commissioners in the form of property tax reductions over 20 years plus conveyance of property at no cost, and by the Greensboro City Council for water and sewer service installation at no cost. "This project will anchor the entire 17-county Carolina Core region," Loren Hill, the regional economic development director for the Piedmont Triad Partnership, told the Randolph County board. A formal announcement of the project will be held at the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite at 2 p.m. this afternoon."
