This article reports that Georgia has seven new Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA): Warner Robins, Brunswick, Dalton, Gainesville, Hinesville-Fort Stewart, Rome and Valdosta. The new designations are bringing visibility and opportunities. Along with increased visibility, the metropolitan status brings to each area a raise in federal funding and a potential boost in economic development. Among Georgia's new MSAs, Gainesville, Rome and Warner Robins are paired only with their central counties. The remaining MSAs comprise principal cities, central counties and outlying counties as a result of commuting patterns.
