Location of the Bismarck Metropolitan Statistical Area in North Dakota

Bismarck–Mandan refers to the metropolitan area (known as the "Bismarck, ND Metropolitan Statistical Area") composed of Burleigh and Morton counties in the state of North Dakota. It's sometimes called the Bis-Man Metro Area or The Sisters Cities of North Dakota. Its core city is Bismarck, the capital of North Dakota; Mandan, which lies across the Missouri River from Bismarck, is the second largest city in the metropolitan area. The population was 108,779 at the 2010 census. In 2012 the combined population of Morton and Burleigh counties (Bismarck Metro Area) totaled 120,060, but could be anywhere higher than 120,000 due to a booming oil industry and a strong robust local economy.
