You can find demographic data on Metropolitan Statistical Areas through American FactFinder. Depending on how accurate, timely, or complete you want your data to be, you can decide between 1-Year averaged estimates, 3-Year averaged estimates, or 5-Year averaged estimates. The 1-Year averaged estimates cover areas with populations over 65,000 (with an average sampling rate of 1.5% of the population); The 3-Year averaged estimates covers areas with populations over 20,000 (with an average sampling rate of 4.5% of the population; and the 5-Year averaged estimates will have the largest sample with an average sampling rate of 7.5% of the population.
