The Clarksville Metropolitan Statistical Area is defined by the United States Census Bureau as an area consisting of four counties – two (Montgomery and Stewart) in Tennessee and two (Christian and Trigg) in Kentucky – anchored by the city of Clarksville, Tennessee. A July 1, 2018 estimate placed the population at 307,820.[1] As of 2009, the Clarksville Metropolitan Statistical Area is the 167th largest MSA in the United States.

Prior to 2003, the area was officially known as the Clarksville-Hopkinsville Metropolitan Statistical Area and included only Montgomery and Christian counties.[2] In 2003, Hopkinsville was removed from the official name as it was no longer considered a principal city.[3] That year, Stewart and Trigg counties were also added to the MSA.
