Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area

The official U.S. Census Bureau-designated Washington-Baltimore-Northern Virginia, DC-MD-VA-WV Combined Statistical Area.
A general map of the counties that are a part of the area.

The Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area is the metropolitan area consisting of Washington, DC, Baltimore, Maryland, Northern Virginia, Central Maryland, and Eastern West Virginia. It is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the U.S. after New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.

Officially, the area is designated the Washington-Baltimore, DC-MD-VA-WV Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area (CMSA). The CMSA includes the Baltimore, MD Primary Metropolitan Statistical Area (PMSA) the Hagerstown, MD PMSA and the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV MSA. However, some counties and cities not officially designated by the Census Bureau as members of this metropolitan area may consider themselves members anyways, mostly because of their proximity to the area, the size of their commuter population, and by the influence of local broadcasting stations.
