The Office of Management and Budget
Office of Management and Budget
(OMB), a federal agency of the United States, defines the Detroit–Warren–Dearborn Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) as the six counties of Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair, and Wayne. As of the 2010 census, the MSA had a population of 4,296,250 with an area of 3,913 square miles (10,130 km2). The nine county area designated by the OMB as the Detroit–Warren– Ann Arbor

Combined Statistical Area
Combined Statistical Area
(CSA) includes the Detroit–Warren–Dearborn MSA and the three additional counties of Genesee, Monroe, and Washtenaw (which include the metropolitan areas of Flint, Monroe, and Ann Arbor, respectively). It had a population of 5,318,744 as of the 2010 census and covers an area of 5,814 square miles (15,060 km2). Lenawee County was removed from the CSA in 2000, but added back in 2013.[2] With the adjacent city of Windsor, Ontario
Windsor, Ontario
and its suburbs, the combined Detroit–Windsor
Detroit–Windsor
area has a population of about 5.7 million.[3] When the nearby Toledo metropolitan area and its commuters are taken into account, the region constitutes a much larger population center. An estimated 46 million people live within a 300-mile (480 km) radius of Detroit
Detroit
proper.[4] Metro Detroit
Detroit
is at the center of an emerging Great Lakes
Great Lakes
Megalopolis. Conan Smith, a businessperson quoted in a 2012 article by The Ann Arbor News, stated the most significant reason Washtenaw County, including Ann Arbor, is not often included in definitions of Metro Detroit
Detroit
is that there is a "lack of affinity that Washtenaw County as a whole has with Wayne County and Detroit
Detroit
or Oakland County and Macomb".[5] Ann Arbor
Ann Arbor
is nearly 43 miles by car from downtown Detroit, and developed separately as a university city, with its own character. Smith said that county residents "just don't yet see ourselves as a natural part of that [Detroit] region, so I think it feels a little forced to a lot of people, and they're scared about it."[5] Economy[edit] Main article: Economy of metropolitan Detroit See also: List of companies based in Michigan

automakers and local manufacturers have made significant restructurings in response to market competition. GM made its initial public offering (IPO) of stock in 2010, after bankruptcy, bailout, and restructuring by the federal government.[17] Domestic automakers reported significant profits in 2010, interpreted by some analysts as the beginning of an industry rebound and an economic recovery for the Detroit

Nearby Windsor has a 19-year-old drinking age with a myriad of entertainment to complement Detroit's Greektown district. Some analysts believe that tourism planners have yet to tap the full economic power of the estimated 46 million people who live within a 300-mile (480-km) radius of Detroit.[4][49] Demographics[edit] Main article: Demographics of Metro Detroit See also: Michigan

as enumerated by the 2010 Census.[52] The Detroit–Windsor

area, a commercial link straddling the Canada-U.S. border, has a total population of about 5,700,000.[53] Immigration and the natural birth rate have not kept pace with the MSA's (nor CSA's) losses from death and emigration since the 2000 United States
United States
Census.[54] As of the census of 2010, there were 4,296,250 people, 1,682,111 households, and 1,110,454 families residing within the metropolitan statistical area. The census reported 70.1% White, 22.8% African American, 0.3% Native American, 3.3% Asian, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 1.2% from other races, and 2.2% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 6.2% of the population. Arab Americans
Arab Americans
were at least 4.7% of the region's population (considered white in the US Census). As of the 2010 American Community Survey
American Community Survey
estimates, the median income for a household in the MSA was $48,198, and the median income for a family was $62,119. The per capita income for the MSA was $25,403. The region's foreign-born population sat at 8.6%. The region contains the largest concentration of Arab-Americans
Arab-Americans
in the United States, particularly in Dearborn. The metro area also has the 25th largest Jewish population worldwide. In 1701, French officer Antoine de La Mothe Cadillac, along with fifty-one additional French-Canadians, founded a settlement called Fort Ponchartrain du Détroit, naming it after the comte de Pontchartrain, Minister of Marine under Louis XIV. The French legacy can be observed today in the names of many area cities (ex. Detroit, Grosse Pointe, Grosse Ile) and streets (ex. Gratiot, Beaubien, St. Antoine, Cadieux). Later came an influx of persons of British and German descent, followed by Polish, Irish, Italian, Lebanese, Assyrian/Chaldean, Greek, Jewish, and Belgian immigrants who made their way to the area in the early 20th century and during and after World War II.[55] There was a large migration into the city from the rural South following World War I.[55] Today, the Detroit
Detroit
suburbs in Oakland County, Macomb County, and northeastern and northwestern Wayne County are predominantly ethnic European American. Oakland County is among the most affluent counties in the United States, with a population of more than one million.[56] In Wayne County, the city of Dearborn has a large concentration of Arab Americans, mainly Christian Lebanese, whose ancestors immigrated here in the early 20th century. Recently, the area has witnessed some growth in ethnic Albanian, Asian and Hispanic populations. In the 2000s, 115 of the 185 cities and townships in Metro Detroit were more than 95% white. African Americans have also moved to the suburbs: 44% of the more than 240,000 suburban blacks lived in Detroit, Highland Park, Inkster, Pontiac, and Southfield.[57]

Roads and freeways[edit] Main article: Roads and freeways in metropolitan Detroit The Metro Detroit
Detroit
area is linked by an advanced network of major roads and freeways which include Interstate highways. Traditionally, Detroiters refer to some of their freeways by name rather than route number. The Davison, Lodge, and Southfield freeways are almost always referred to by name rather than route number. Detroiters commonly precede freeway names with the word 'the' as in the Lodge, the Southfield, and the Davison. Those without names are referred to by number. Surface street navigation in Metro Detroit
Detroit
is commonly anchored by "mile roads", major east-west surface streets that are spaced at one-mile (1.6 km) intervals and increment as one travels north and away from the city center. Mile roads sometimes have two names, the numeric name (ex. 15 Mile Road) used in Macomb County and a local name (ex. Maple Road) used in Oakland County mostly.
