The Deltona–Daytona Beach–Ormond Beach, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area is a metropolitan statistical area (MSA) in central and the north portions of Florida consisting of Volusia and Flagler counties in the state of Florida.[2] As of 2013, it is the 88th-largest MSA in the United States, with a census-estimated population of 600,756.



The MSA was first defined in 1971 as the Daytona Beach, FL Standard MSA, consisting of Volusia County. Flagler County was added to the MSA in 1992. In 2003 the MSA was renamed Deltona–Daytona Beach–Ormond Beach, and Flagler County was removed from the MSA in and designated the Palm Coast, FL Micropolitan Statistical Area (μSA. The Palm Coast area became an MSA in 2006. The Palm Coast MSA was eliminated in 2013, and Flagler County was placed in the Deltona–Daytona Beach–Ormond Beach MSA again.[3]
