Bismarck–Mandan refers to the metropolitan area (known as the "Bismarck, ND Metropolitan Statistical Area") composed of Burleigh, Morton, Oliver, and Sioux counties in the state of North Dakota. It is sometimes referred to as the Bisman area.
Its core cities are Bismarck and Mandan, which are across from each other on opposite sides of the upper Missouri River. Lincoln, is an adjacent suburb of Bismarck. The 2016 population of the MSA was estimated at 131,635. The area grew considerably with the addition of Oliver and Sioux counties in 2013. However, with relatively sparse populations, the addition of Oliver and Sioux counties only added approximately 6,000 people to the metropolitan population. The 2016 Bismarck–Mandan–Lincoln urban population is estimated at 98,776.
In 2013 the Office of Management and Budget revised the definitions of metropolitan statistical areas; the Bismarck–Mandan MSA was enlarged by the inclusion of Oliver and Sioux counties from that year.
