Geography

The midwest region is located west of the great lakes and south of canada. This area includes North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan. Major landforms include the Ozarks in Missouri, the barren eroded Badlands of South Dakota, the Great Lakes, and the Great Plains. In the Midwest winters can be very cold and summers are usually long and hot. Most places get up to 20 inches or precipitation annually.

Population/Culture

A 2012 report from the United States Census put the population of the Midwest at 65,377,684. Immigrants come from all around to get jobs in the Midwest. The high immigration rates balance out the leaving of the native born workers. Most people in the Midwest come from a German ancestry.
