Dear IPUMS team,

i am wondering why the MSA named “Hattiesburg, MS” coded as 3300 in pwmetro and 3285 in metarea? Is it the same MSA?

Thank you!

Yes, these are the same MSAs. Thanks for sending us this note. This is slightly confusing. I’ll send a note to the IPUMS USA team to clarify this detail.
