The American Midwest is a section of the county located directly west of the east coast states, north of the southern states and east of the Rocky Mountain states. Indiana is usually the center state in this region and Bloomington is very close to the center of the area. Different sources indicate different states as being part of the midwest, although Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota are always included. Usually Kentucky and Iowa are included as well.
