According to the U.S. Census Bureau, MD and DE are both considered to be part of the "South" region. And me living in Connecticut, when I travel down to MD or DE it feels much more southern than New England. People just don't understand this, but it's totally true.

I grew up in SC and Texas doesn't seem anything like the Carolinas to me. I think it has more in common with New Mexico and Arizona culturally. To me "southern" implies the state was part of the original southern colonies.

If you had to guess, what percentage of the total number of domestic migrants to the Washington, DC metro area over the last 25 years were from the Northeast (defined by the Census as PA, NJ, NY, CT, MA, RI, NH, VT and ME)?

What percentage do you think came from the Boston, New York and Philly MSAs specifically?

Frederick MD seemed pretty much like the south to me except some places didn't have sweet tea, and they don't have real pulled pork BBQ and rice and hash there. Plus a lot more snow.

I guess the culture changes pretty drastically from northern to southern even at 25 miles south of the Mason-Dixon line.

If you can be in New Jersey in less than two hours by car, you ain't in the south.

Maryland and Jersey are 12 miles apart at their closest points.

That's how long it takes to get from Richmond to Baltimore.

Baltimore is where things start to change, imo. You go from southern-lite/neutral Americana in DC to northern-lite in Baltimore. I think Baltimore is more a mixture of north and south than DC.

Interesting question. Do you have a better source than the IRS data, because I can try to piece it together from that, but it might take a long time. (Btw, I'm sure he's including the Baltimore MSA when he says Maryland is not a part of the South (also, other government organizations define the South differently than the Census Bureau).

Anyway, I'll start compiling data, but please feel free to bail me out if you have the answer.
