tri-county

I hear the phrase "tri-county" all the time. E.g. "In the tri-county area". However, there seem to be an almost unending number of "tri-counties". Does this phrase usually refer to a single geographic location? Or is the occurrence of one metropolitan centre spread over three counties really that common?

...or?
