Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Here's my query to collect all of the States within the US:

[out:json]; area['admin_level'='2']['name'='United States']; (relation['admin_level'='4'](area);); out tags;

My Overpass server returns Baja California in the results for this query, even though this state is in Mexico. Overpass Turbo correctly excludes this from the results.

Similarly, my query to collect all of the cities within Indiana returns Chicago in the results (while the Overpass Turbo only includes East Chicago & New Chicago):

[timeout:900][out:json]; area['ISO3166-2'~'^US']['admin_level'='4']['name'='Indiana']; (relation['admin_level'~'8'](area);); out tags;

I'm using the wiktorn/overpass-api Docker image that I started it with:

docker run \ -e OVERPASS_META=yes \ -e OVERPASS_MODE=clone \ -e OVERPASS_DIFF_URL=https://planet.openstreetmap.org/replication/minute/ \ -v /home/ubuntu/overpass_clone_db/:/db \ -p 80:80 \ -i -t \ --name overpass_world \ wiktorn/overpass-api

Is there something that I can do to correct these results?

There was something wrong with my initial attempt at using the Docker image. I deleted my container and retried the process - everything worked great.

Also, installing Overpass directly onto a server worked great too.
