The Danville Micropolitan Statistical Area comprises Boyle and Lincoln Counties, Kentucky, with a total population of 54,380 according to the 2017 U.S. Census estimate.
A Micropolitan Statistical Area is defined as an urban area based around an urban cluster with a population of 10,000 to 49,999, including any adjacent counties that have a high degree of social and economic integration as measured by commuting to work.
For the Danville Micro, that urban cluster is the City of Danville in Boyle County, with a population of 16,349 according to the 2012 U.S. Census estimate. Lincoln County is socially and economically integrated in the Danville Micro because it is the primary source of commuting workforce to Danville-Boyle County via US 150 and US 127. The Danville Micro is one of only 576 micropolitan areas in the United States.
We consider our micropolitan designation as being the small town version of a larger metropolitan area, with many of the same bigger city amenities for businesses, residents, retirees, and visitors. That's why we like to call it "countrypolitan"!
