Broward County’s CBSA Number is: 33100
CBSA stands for Core-based statistical area. This is similar to how one would think of a MSA. It’s a local United States geographic area defined by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) that consists of one or more counties (or equivalents) anchored by an urban center of at least 10,000 people plus adjacent counties that are socioeconomically tied to the urban center by commuting. For us here in Broward county think of the tri-county area Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties as being the urban centers with Fort Lauderdale being Broward counties CBSA.
Areas defined on the basis of these standards applied to Census 2000 data were announced by OMB in June 2003. These standards are used to replace the definitions of metropolitan areas that were defined in 1990. The OMB released new standards based on the 2010 Census on July 15, 2015.
