Initial visibility

To set the template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{Regions of the United States|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Regions of the United States|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Regions of the United States|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page
If the |state= parameter is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the template. For this template, that currently evaluates to 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
