are the 50 states all there?
There are 5 regions in the U.S., am I correct? If not, tell me the amount. Now, I need to know, are all 50 states represented in these regions? Explain. Oh, and why? Thanks, It's helpful!
Somebody just told me there were 6 regions. I'm so confused!!

The US Census Bureau designates 4 regions which encompass the 50 states and District of Columbia..
Region 1 (Northeast)
Division 1 (New England) Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut
Division 2 (Mid-Atlantic) New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey
Region 2 (Midwest) (Prior to June 1984, the Midwest Region was designated as the North Central Region.)
Division 3 (East North Central) Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio
Division 4 (West North Central) Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa
Region 3 (South)
Division 5 (South Atlantic) Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida
Division 6 (East South Central) Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama
Division 7 (West South Central) Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana
Region 4 (West)
Division 8 (Mountain) Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico
Division 9 (Pacific) Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Hawaii
The US Office of Management and Budget designates 10 regions, and they include not just the 50 states and D.C., but also the outer territories:
Region I: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont
Region II: New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands
Region III: Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia
Region IV: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee
Region V: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin
Region VI: Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas
Region VII: Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska
Region VIII: Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming
Region IX: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada (American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands)
Region X: Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Washington
There are physical regions as well, but those are not based on state boundaries.

Actually, there are 7.
The south Central states, The Rocky Mountain states, The pacific Coast states, the New England states, The Middle Atlantic States, the North Central states, and the South eastern States.
All are represented. Hawaii and Alaska are part of the pacific coast states. Sorry for all the confusion :/ but I'm positive i'm correct.

your correct to their being five regions. And yes all 50 are in the five regions. Alaska and Hawaii are still considered to be in the west region.
There are not 6 regions, there are 5. There is Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest and West.

I think you should explain to me what a region is? I mean, I don't know. Is it a country? Or is it a state. What is a country different from a state. Wait, what is a nation if America is the continent. Seriously, I am confused.
