In general, Metropolitan counties (1,236 counties) are more prevalent along both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, and throughout the eastern and Midwestern states. Micropolitan (663 counties) and Noncore (1,334) counties are more common in the Northeast, parts of Northern Midwest, the Great Plains, and the Rocky Mountain region.
