The U.S. Census Bureau defines the Cleveland-Lorain PMSA as consisting of all of the following six counties: Ashtabula County, Cuyahoga County, Geauga County, Lake County, Lorain County, Medina County.
The Akron PMSA consists of all of the following two counties: Portage County, Summit County.
However, the areas commonly understood as Greater Cleveland or Northeast Ohio are not precisely defined. Most often, Greater Cleveland is understood as referring to all of Cuyahaga County, and sometimes a few other immediately adjacent communities.
Northeast Ohio is commonly understood as being a larger, more inclusive area than Greater Cleveland, consisting of portions of all the eight counties in the CMSA, and at times including other communities such as Canton, Massillon, Alliance, and even Sandusky, Youngstown, and Warren.
So to be clear: the areas commonly referred to as Greater Cleveland or Northeast Ohio is NOT precisely the same as the Cleveland-Akron CMSA defined by the U.S. Census.
The region offers unsurpassed educational and world-class medical facilities, regional and national centers for the arts, and top-notch entertainment and professional sports, and is surrounded by an extensive array of scenic parks, situated within a few miles of beautiful Lake Erie, one of the largest fresh water lakes in the world.
Not only does NortheastOhio allow you to take advantage of superb cultural, educational, recreational, and entertainment amenities, but it does so at a cost-of-living well below that of other major metropolitan areas across the country!
Residents in NortheastOhio enjoy affordable housing, easily accessible roads and transportation services, and an unparalleled quality of life.
