- The United States is home to many different regions and subregions, and there's plenty of debate over which region certain states fall in.
- The US Census Bureau has used the same regional definitions since 1950.
- The bureau divides the US into four regions - Northeast, Midwest, South, and West - and nine subregions.
But it's not always clear where one region ends and another begins. There's no consensus on whether the Dakotas are part of the Midwest, for example, or if Arkansas belongs to the South.
The United States is home to several different regions and subregions, each with its own unique history and culture.
Take a look at how the Census groups the 50 states - and decide whether you agree with where your state ended up.
