Which of the 11 American nations do you live in?
« on: November 10, 2013, 11:17:01 AM »
We have gotten so used to dividing the US into red and blue that we fail to recognize the history of how each region evolved and how they differ. 

 This article from Tufts University has divided America into eleven separate nations and offers some insights into how the region's are different in relation to politics, crime, violence,  attitudes,etc.

 It's pretty interesting.   The Washington Post also wrote a summary of the article that's pretty interesting.

interesting. it would be neat to see an even more defined map of pockets that don't comply with the norm surrounding them. a peppered map.
the way it was presented was good and it just goes to show how peoples beliefs can hang tight over many generations.

Very interesting to see the history of the different immigrants and how views are formed.

On a side note and as someone who didn't really follow politics until 2000, I didn't know the red and blue colors didn't become the colors of Dems and repubs until about 2000.  Wasn't it Tim Russert, who assigned the colors and then it just took off around 2000??  Before that, different news outlets used different colors??  I will have to go back and read that.  I know that has nothing to do with this article, but just found that interesting.

Hmmm... so I've actually lived in four different countries during my illustrious life.

Loudoun County, VA in "Greater Appalachia"? That's just so wrong.

And Philly is in the same "Midlands" country as Omaha, NE? Barbara please.

Its an interesting analysis and also good as a paradigm to go ahead and make different  categories than those proposed here.
I also think the current categories in the zeitgeist have a lot to say.  For example, social/economic classes and how they are changing.  Or "World views".   The bubble dwellers...  The liberal elites.  Tea partiers.  Christians.  The working poor.  The downwardly mobile. The super rich.  Also Id say ten years into heavy Internet use people have found and defined their "nations" or communities, of like minded thinkers, not based on region, geography, and history.

Yet another interesting blurb on this subject, coming from a different angle:
