Each region varies slightly in its cultural traditions, history, climate and geographic features, and more.
One way to divide the United States into geographic regions would create just four regions: the East Coast, Midwest, South, and West. Further divisions are often made, however, making for more precise regional boundaries. Some states may belong to more than one region, and as such, defining regions can be challenging.
According to US Census Bureau, each of the four census regions is divided into two or more census divisions (See table below)
|United States Regions Map|

|Region 2 (The Midwest)|
|Division 3 (East North Central)||Division 4 (West North Central)|
|Region 3 (The South)|
|Division 5 (South Atlantic)||Division 6 (East South Central)|
|District of Columbia||Mississippi|
|North Carolina||Division 7 (West South Central)|
|Region 4 (The West)|
