Regions of the East USA

There are 26 states east of the Mississippi River, which make up the Eastern United States.

The area of the United States east of the Mississippi River is commonly known as the East or the East Coast. [1][2][3][4][5][6]

A total of 179,948,346 people lived in the 26 states located east of the Mississippi River in 2011; this represents 58 As much as 28 percent of the entire U. S containing 331 745 358 people

The region encompassing the states of New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine [ edit ]

The modern-day states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut make up New England, a region of the United States in the northeastern corner of the country bounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Canada, and the state of New York.

Pilgrims from England and other parts of Europe arrived in New England in 1620, founding the colony of Plymouth as one of the earliest English settlements in the New World. The New England Colonies were among the earliest British colonies in North America to show signs of wanting independence from Britain in the late 18th century.

Free and compulsory public education had its origins in New England, as did the first works of American literature and philosophy. When it came to the fight to end slavery in the United States in the 19th century, it was a major player. To a greater extent than any other area of the United States, it was the first to be affected by the Industrial Revolution.

Historically a Republican stronghold, this area now boasts some of the strongest Democratic support in the country. Majorities of voters in every state in the region backed Democrats in the 1992, 1996, 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016 presidential elections. and the 2020 presidential election, and the fact that every state voted for Al Gore in 2000 except New Hampshire.

Midwest [ edit ]

The United States Census Bureau classifies the Midwest, or the Midwestern United States, as one of the four recognized regions of the country.

Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin—five states in the central and inland northeastern US—can also be classified as being part of the Eastern United States. Its population was estimated to be 66,217,736 in 2006 by the Census Bureau. The East North Central States, which are essentially the Great Lakes States, are separated from the West North Central States by the United States Census Bureau.

The region's largest city is Chicago, followed by Columbus and Indianapolis. The most populous MSA is in Chicago, then in Detroit, and then in Minneapolis-Saint Paul. It was in 1668 that French explorers and missionaries established Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan as the region's oldest settlement.

For more than a century, people have been referring to the region as the Midwest. The phrase "the heartland" can also be used to refer to this area. The terms "Northwest" and "Old Northwest" (derived from "Northwest Territory") and "Mid-America" are no longer commonly used to describe the area. Sociologists have used Midwestern cities (and the Midwest more generally) as "typical" of the entire country ever since the book Middletown was published in 1929. The employment-to-population ratio (the fraction of the working-age population that is employed) in this area is higher than in the rest of the country.

Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota, four states commonly associated with the Midwest, are also sometimes considered to be a part of the Great Plains.

America's Deep South [ edit ]

There is some overlap between the Eastern and Southern United States, with states like Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi often being included in both regions.

The following are examples of the distinctive cultural and historical heritage of this area:[7][8]

These factors, among others, allowed "the South" to develop unique cultural practices, canons of literature and music, and culinary traditions that have left an indelible mark on the history of the United States.

Beginning in the 1940s, there was a gradual transition away from a predominantly rural society toward one that was increasingly concentrated in and around major urban centers. Some parts of the South have experienced phenomenal economic growth since the late 20th century. As a result, many people from other regions, especially the northeastern United States, have relocated to the southern states. Among the eastern southern states in 2020, Virginia was home to 22 Fortune 500 companies, followed by Florida with 18, North Carolina with 13, and Tennessee with 10. [10]
