The Northwest Ordinance (formally An Ordinance for the Government of the Territory of the United States, North-West of the River Ohio, and also known as the Freedom Ordinance or The Ordinance of 1787) set the mandate for the creation of new states from the region, once a population of 60,000 had been achieved within a particular territory.

The Enabling Act of 1802 established the precedent and procedures for creation of future states in the western territories. The act requires territories to elect a delegate for each 1,200 people to attend a constitutional convention. The enabling act requires the prospective state to adopt a form of government and constitution that are in compliance with the U.S. Constitution.
