Is this something you made yourself? It's very helpful. Have you ever tried making an approximate map of Urbanized Areas?

Yes. Using the Census Bureau's map as a source.

By urbanized area, do you mean something like this map or this map?

Hey Phizzy, is Montcalm county not part of the GR CMSA?
No. It just barely doesn't meet the 25% commuting standard.

Source: "Montcalm county does not qualify as part of the Grand Rapids metropolitan area because

only an estimated 24.6 percent of its workers commute to Kent county."

TY. Man you're good with this stuff :good:

I'd guess that it'll be included by the next census then.

The GR metro is nearly as big as Detroit's! Really that's kind of ridiculous.

Yes, I mean like that (in reference to the second part of your post.) It would be really cool to see Census Urbanized Areas of Michigan's major cities juxtaposed over one another to compare their sizes.
