This division includes eight states and one district;
Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia[http://www.census.gov/geo/www/us_regdiv.pdf] . Together with the East South Central States( Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippiand Tennessee) and the West South Central States( Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahomaand Texas), the South Atlantic States constitute the United States Census Bureau's broader Census Bureau Regionof the South (the other three regions being the Northeast, Midwestand West, all of which have two divisions).
Most of the area covered by the South Atlantic United States comprises the
New South, one of the nine "moral regions" into which the United Statesis divided in the 1991 non-fiction book " The Day America Told The Truth", with the rest of the South being placed in a different moral region, that of Old Dixie. Some parts of Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland, along with the District of Columbia, are considered to be a part of Metropolis, with the northern panhandle of West Virginiabeing classified in the Rust Belt.
