Michiana is a region in northern Indiana and southwest Michigan centered around the city of South Bend, Indiana. The population as of the 2000 census was 983,929 (770,372 in Indiana and 213,557 in Michigan). The name is a portmanteau of "Michigan" and "Indiana", and was chosen as the winning entry in a contest to name the area held by the South Bend Tribune in the early 20th Century. The term is frequently used throughout the area, particularly by local radio and television stations based in South Bend that serve the entire area, but also by businesses that seek to draw customers from Indiana into Michigan or vice versa.

The Chamber of Commerce of St. Joseph County (Indiana) defines Michiana as "counties that contribute at least 500 inbound commuting workers to St. Joseph County daily." Those counties include St. Joseph (Indiana), La Porte, Starke, Marshall, Elkhart, Berrien, and Cass. The Chamber defines the remaining counties as belonging to "Greater Michiana" -- "counties within a 60-mile driving distance to St. Joseph County" -- though the driving distance presumably refers to the distance between the metropolitan South Bend area and significant population centers in outlying areas, since a strict definition allowing for 60 miles from any point in St. Joseph County would add even more counties to the Greater Michiana area. For example, Walkerton in southwestern St. Joseph County is located approximately 30 miles from Monterey in northeastern Pulaski County, yet Pulaski is not included in the Chamber's list of Greater Michiana counties.
