U.S. Census Regions Map [2]

The population for the four regions and Total U.S. (50 States & DC) agree with the CSV file from the U.S. Census Bureau in the reference below. Division totals were derived by summing the populations of the states (from first table in this article) according to the official Census Bureau map which shows which states make up the nine divisions and which divisions make up the four regions. The sum of the population for the divisions for each region sum correctly to the region totals in the reference.
