The Cincinnati primary metropolitan statistic area (PMSA) has a population of almost 1.6 million (1997 data) and an employment distribution quite similar to the nation’s. The PMSA’s service sector is dominated by health, education, and other professional services, as are many other large urban areas. Recent data for Hamilton County (which includes the city of Cincinnati but excludes part of the PMSA) show that its economy has a smaller government sector and larger manufacturing sector than the nation—an industrial composition typical of the Fourth District.
