I don't see the need to debate the geographic region of borderline states. Each state is part of whatever region the US Census says it is...it doesn't really matter what a bunch of bozos on city-data think. LOL!

Calm down, I wasn't talking about you...I actually agreed with you.

I was talking about the bozos that start these threads trying to debate which states are in which regions. Those are already defined, no matter what anyone on city-data thinks.

OK fair enough, I was reacting to you quoting me that's all. Believe it or not we get the same thing in Washington State. Are we West Coast, Northwest, or Alaska...yes Alaska! No harm no foul.

I would say the region is West, but Northwest is the subregion.

The parts that border Indiana and Michigan are indeed very Midwestern. The eastern parts of the state are northeastern influenced, but overall I agree with the census people that Ohio is Midwestern. It is the state where Midwestern ways become northeastern as you travel east, but overall it is far more Midwestern.

Ohio like Missouri straddles regions but both states fit in better with the Midwest than anywhere else.
