Default Regional Midwest Breakdown

Maybe we could break down the midwest a little more?

Open to any ideas. Not to give the impression that I have much intelligence, I lifted the idea from http://www.f150online.com/forums/index.php
Got any ideas where the break should be? You suggested it, so you have to get out the map.

Just my two cents but it seems like the Midwest is usually : IA, IL, IN, MI, MN, MO, WI & maybe KY and KS but WY, CO and the Dakotas are usually considered out West from here.

Jim!!! Hey, welcome aboard.

I'll Google this tomorrow. I bet there is a site which lists all the generally accepted regions.

OK, making progress. I found http://www.census.gov/geo/www/us_regdiv.pdf which gives the 'official' regional breakdowns as recognized by the U.S. Census Bureau. However, looking it over shows there's no 'Northwest' or 'Southwest'. Also the 'West: Mountain' region is huge. But, it breaks down the USA into 9 regions. After looking at the map it makes some sense, and I might as well go with what the census uses.

Northeast: New England (CT, MN, MA, NH, RI, VT)
Northeast: Middle Atlantic (NJ, NY, PA)
Midwest: East North Central (IN, IL, MI, OH, WI)
Midwest: West North Central (IO, KS, MN, MO, NE, ND, SD)
South: South Atlantic (DE, DC, FL, GA, MD, NC, SC, VA, WV)
South: East South Central (AL, KY, MS, TN)
South: West South Central (AR, LA, OK, TX)
West: Pacific (AK, HI, OR, WA)
West: Mountain (AZ, CO, ID, NM, MO, UT, NV, WY)

Default Midwest geographics

No offense to midwesterners, but as a Montana resident and Wyoming native, MT and WY are definitely in the West or Northwest. Perhaps a Southwest forum for AZ, NM, NV UT would help

Smile An entire catagory missing

Actually, we're missing the southwest! No offense to my Texas friends but please take NM out of the South No grits here but we do have some fine green chile

Generally Az, Ut, NM, Nv are considered the 'Great American South West'.
