Location of the London MSA

The London, Kentucky micropolitan area is made up of three counties in the Eastern Coalfield region of Kentucky. Before 2013, the area was officially known as the Corbin-London, KY Combined Statistical Area, and consisted of the Corbin Micropolitan Statistical Area and the London Micropolitan Statistical Area. The Corbin micropolitan area consisted of Whitley County, and the London micropolitan area consisted of Laurel County.

In 2013, the United States Census Bureau folded the CSA into the redefined London micropolitan area, and Knox County was added to the statistical area. This incidentally ended a statistical anomaly that excluded the 20% of the population of Corbin living in Knox County from the statistical area.

As of the 2010 United States Census, the region now defined as the London micropolitan area had a population of 126,369.

As of the census of 2000, the statistical area, which then consisted of only Laurel and Whitley Counties, had a population of 88,580 and had an estimated population of 96,562 in 2009.[1]
