The Tucson MSA is comprised entirely of Pima County located in southern Arizona sixty miles north of the United States-Mexico border.
The greater Tucson area has seen consistently large growth ever since the early 20th century. Since the turn of the Millennium, the area has grown by over sixteen percent, and by approximately two percent in the last five years. One of the primary reasons for this is the city's proximity to the border of Mexico, and the flow of immigrants coming from Mexico and South American countries. These growth trends are expected to continue on into the future as immigrants not only from Central America, but from countries around the world continue to settle in the greater Tucson area.
