Are the midwest and west the same thing?

Report as

Midwest is generally referred to as those state which once made up the Northwest Territories and include Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Iowa and Missouri are also included on occasion.

"West" is generally referred to those states along and west of the Rocky Mountains. The states in between the "Midwest" and "West" are commonly referred to as Plains States.

These are generic terms and there are no hard-and-fast rules as to what state falls into which category.

The Western United States of America and the Midwest states are not the same. The Midwestern part of US consists of states like Michigan, Iowa, Ohio, Illinois, South Dakota and Missouri, among others. The western US refer to the states that are far most of the river Mississippi. Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midwestern_United_States and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_United_States for more of these details.
