Wilayah Barat Tengah menurut yang didefinisikan oleh Biro Sensus AS.

Amerika Serikat Barat Tengah adalah salah satu dari empat wilayah geografi yang didefinisikan oleh Biro Sensus Amerika Serikat, yang meliputi bagian tengah utara Amerika Serikat.[1] Wilayah tersebut secara resmi dinamai wilayah Tengah Utara menurut Biro Sensus sampai 1984.[2]

Meskipun wilayah tersebut biasanya didefinisikan dalam sejumlah cara, definisi Biro Sensus terdiri dari 12 negara bagian di tengah utara Amerika Serikat: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, dan Wisconsin. Illinois adalah negara bagian paling padat dan North Dakota adalah negara bagian yang memiliki kepadatan terendah. Menurut laporan Sensus Amerika Serikat 2012, populasi Barat Tengah Amerika Serikat berjumlah 65,377,684 jiwa. Wilayah Barat Tengah dibagi oleh Biro Sensus dalam dua divisi. Divisi Tengah Utara Timur meliputi Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio dan Wisconsin, yang semuanya juga merupakan bagian dari wilayah Danau-Danau Besar. Divisi Tengah Utara Barat meliputi Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, dan South Dakota, yang semunya, kecuali Iowa, Missouri dan Minnesota, terletak, setidaknya bagian dari, di wilayah Dataran Great Plain di negara tersebut. Sungai-sungai besar di wilayah tersebut meliputi, dari timur ke barat, Sungai Ohio, Hulu Sungai Mississippi, dan Sungai Missouri, yang merupakan cabang-cabang utama dari utara Sungai Mississippi.
