These geographic areas can be classified as one of the following three types: (1) Metropolitan Area (MA): The state part of a selected metropolitan statistical area (MSA) or combined statistical area (CSA). (2) The Remainder of State (ROS): The portion of a state containing the counties that are not included in the MA type CFS Areas defined above.
