The State of the Midwest Is Anybody’s Guess

Illinois is in the Midwest, right? Uh, maybe not. It turns out that most self-avowed Midwesterners are not entirely on the same page when it comes to identifying the so-called Midwestern states. FiveThirtyEight’s DataLab used SurveyMonkey Audience to ask Midwesterners which states they think make up the Midwest. Here’s some of what they found:

  • Only 80% of Midwesterners think Illinois is part of the Midwest. (Tweet this.)

  • Most Minnesotans believe they are the heart of the Midwest, while most residents of Indiana believe they are. (Tweet this.)

  • 70% of Midwesterners believe Indiana, Illinois and Iowa make up the core Midwest. (Tweet this.)

  • 60% of Midwesterners believe Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota are the core Midwest. (Tweet this.)
