Central/West Texas? See, again, my unbiased/inexperienced stigma of the region tells me otherwise, but I have no problem admitting that stigma is wrong. When I think of like the "Wild West" or deep Southwest I think of the region highlighted on that map, if not expanded further North into southern UT and CO.

9.) Central Intermountain West
10.) Pacific & Central South West
11.) Pacific North West
I can live with your map. I certainly don't think Northern Ohio is the same region as Missouri, nor do I think the upper portions of Mississippi and Alabama are the Upper South.

The hill country of Texas i.e. San Antonio and Austin and areas like Midland/Odessa have no regional affiliation with Arizona. They are two separate areas of the country entirely.

The lower portion of the upper south, closer to the transition zone with the deep south. So, naturally it's going to favor more the deep south than the upper south. Those borders are more like transition zones.

In my opinion Eastern Ohio is more like western PA...
