Here it is:

Always Included = Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Southern Arkansas, Eastern Texas and Southeastern North Carolina

Usually Included = East Central Texas, Central Arkansas, Tennessee, Southeastern Oklahoma and the rest of North Carolina

Sometimes Included = West Central Texas, Central Oklahoma, Southern Missouri, Far Southern Illinois, Far Southern Indiana, Kentucky (except Campbell, Kenton and Boone Counties), Gallia and Lawrence Counties in Ohio, Southern West Virginia, Virginia and Charles, St. Mary's, Wicomico, Somerset and Worcester Counties in MD.

Rarely Included = The rest of Texas (except the Western Panhandle), Northern Oklahoma, Southeastern Kansas, Central Missouri, The rest of Southern Illinois, The rest of Southern Indiana, Southern Ohio, The rest of West Virginia (except Marshall, Ohio, Brooke and Hancock Counties), The rest of Maryland, Delaware and Salem, Cumberland, Cape May and Atlantic Counties in NJ

When the maximum extent of the region is used, The South is the largest region in the US.

Basically anything from Atlantic City to Key West in the Atlantic Coast and from Key West to Port Isabel in the Gulf Coast.

This subject is not only getting old it is getting sickening and tiresome. Some should go back to school and get some more education. They teach the correct info on this there.

If its north of the Ohio river it is ALWAY the north. I cant believe anyone could say that parts of Indiana, Illinois and Ohio could be part of the south. The home states of Lincoln, Grant and Sherman and someone says parts of this area is in the south. No, just no.

I wish people would just understand historical occurrences do not dictate geography. Landmass and a compass dictate what is Southern, Eastern, Western, etc.

You divided the other states but not Florida? I would at least say that North Florida is always included, Central Florida is sometimes included and South Florida is rarely included.

There are a lot of areas north of the Ohio that are actually heavily influenced by southern culture. The Ohio river is less of a dividing line between north and south as it is a "transitional zone" of sorts.

Florida is always included but Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia are sometimes or rarely included? You do know that the term "the south" isn't synonymous with Deep South, right?

Is eastern Nebraska Midwest, but south central Nebraska the plains, and western Nebraska the west coast?
