How to manage this template's initial visibility

To manage this template's visibility when it first appears, add the parameter:

|collapsed to show the template in its collapsed state, i.e. hidden apart from its titlebar – e.g. {{Regions of the United States |collapsed}};
|expanded to show the template in its expanded state, i.e. fully visible – e.g. {{Regions of the United States |expanded}};
|autocollapse to show the template in its collapsed state but only if there is another template of the same type on the page – e.g. {{Regions of the United States |autocollapse}}.

Unless set otherwise (see the state parameter in the template's code), the template's default state is autocollapse.

Inclusion criteria[edit]

For a region to be included on this template, a region must have one of the below:

  • have at least two entire states, and portions of at least two others e.g., New England is only 71,998 sq mi (186,470 km2) but has 6 states
  • have an area greater than the smallest listed area under criterion 1,
  • be part of a listed geographical taxonomy e.g., Region II (OMB & FEMA) has NY-NJ-PR-VI with areas: 54,555+8,729+3,515+134 = 66933 < 71,998
