Metropolitan statistical area

The Chicago Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) was originally designated by the United States Census Bureau in 1950. It consisted of the Illinois counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake and Will, along with Lake County in Indiana. As surrounding counties saw an increase in their population densities and the number of their residents employed within Cook County, they met Census criteria to be added to the MSA. The Chicago MSA, now defined as the Chicago-Naperville-Elgin, IL-IN-WI Metropolitan Statistical Area, is the third largest MSA by population in the United States with a population of 9,537,289. The Chicago MSA is further subdivided by state boundaries into the Chicago-Naperville-Joliet, IL Metropolitan Division, corresponding roughly to the CMAP region; the Gary, IN Metropolitan Division consisting of the Indiana counties of Lake and Porter, as well as two surrounding counties; and the Lake County-Kenosha County, IL-WI Metropolitan Division. A breakdown of the 2009 estimated populations of the three Metropolitan Divisions of the MSA are as follows: Chicago-Aurora-Joliet, IL Metropolitan Division (7,998,257) Cook County (5,287,037) DeKalb County (107,333) DuPage County (932,541) Grundy County (48,421) Kane County (511,892) Kendall County (104,821) McHenry County (320,961) Will County (685,251) Gary, IN Metropolitan Division (709,265) Jasper County (IN) (33,520) Lake County (IN) (496,478) Newton County (IN) (14,250) Porter County (IN) (165,017) Lake County-Kenosha County, IL-WI Metropolitan Division (877,949) Lake County (IL) (712,567) Kenosha County (WI) (165,382)
