Brazilians did not distinguish between the North, Northeast, South and Southeast as they did in the
1920s. Even so, provinces are divided into regions according to twentieth-century conventions for the
sake of analysis: the North comprises Pará and Amazonas; the Northeast, Maranhão, Ceará, Piauí, Rio
Grande do Norte, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Sergipe, Alagoas, and Bahia; the Southeast, Espírito Santo,
Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, and the Côrte; the Central West, Mato Grosso and Goiás; and
the South, Paraná, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul. See Figure 1.
