Census moves Brunswick Co. into the Myrtle Beach metro stats

WILMINGTON, NC (GREATER WILMINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL) — U.S. Census population counts for metro Wilmington will no longer include Brunswick County, according to new population shifts in the county and federal guidelines for demography.

The U.S. Office of Management and Budget, which sets and revises the delineation and addition of counties and cities for 381 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) across the country, has redefined the Wilmington MSA, removing Brunswick County and lumping it with the Myrtle Beach-Conway-North Myrtle Beach, S.C. MSA.

The removal took effect in February, according to a U.S. Office of Management and Budget news release.

The Wilmington MSA will now consist of New Hanover and Pender counties with Wilmington serving as the principal city.
