Area Overview

The 19-county Metroplex region covers about 15,600 square miles in northern Texas, stretching from Oklahoma south to the Brazos River and from the Cedar Creek Reservoir on the east to Possum Kingdom Lake, on the west. The region includes two metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs). The first is the Sherman-Denison MSA, and the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington MSA. It also includes two Metropolitan Divisions (MDs): the Fort Worth-Arlington MD, and the Dallas-Plano-Irving MD. The Metroplex region revolves around the cities of Dallas (Dallas County) and Fort Worth (Tarrant County). Dallas is the third-largest city in Texas. The region’s business-friendly environment, low cost of living, central location, superior access to the U.S. and the world through its transportation network, and a strong base of well-educated and skilled employees, make it one of the nation’s top locations to live, work and do business. It is an innovation hub with a vibrant quality of life for all.
