 Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. — KuyaBriBri Talk 22:34, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

Questionable content in the Economy section

Material of this sort: "Ohio has 5 of the top 115 colleges in the nation, according to U.S. News and World Report's 2010 rankings,[106] and was ranked No. 8 by the same magazine in 2008 for best high schools." sounds like it was clipped from an Ohio promotional brochure, as does much of the rest of the Economy section. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pcp071098 ( talkcontribs) 06:20, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Continuously-spilling creek

The claim that the word "Ohio" derives from a Seneca term meaning "continuously-spilling creek" seems to be original research. The only source appears to be synthesis from a Cayuga, NOT Seneca, online dictionary.-- Chaswmsday ( talk) 11:26, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Climate Type Map

That climate type map is really wrong. There is no humid subtropical climate in the north. Maybe in 2100 there will be but not now. Average highs even along the lake in January barely crack freezing and the mean is well below it. At KBKL the min/max/ave in January is 23.4/35.1/29.3 F. KCLE is 21.7/34.4/28.1 F. KAKR is 19.5/33.9/26.7 F. Source NCDC 1981-2010 Normals Data Tool. I think that map should be removed and replaced with a more accurate one. -- 174.130.65.185 ( talk) 21:43, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Largest Metropolitan Area in Ohio

According the US Census Bureau, and the Wikipedia page here http://webot.org/info/en/?search=Combined_statistical_area, the Cleveland metro area is bigger than Columbus or Cincinnati. Beboccucci ( talk) 17:20, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
