Show data for a dimension associated with the selected dimension


I am simply trying to create an expression in a text object that will show a count of items for a Region if a State in that Region is selected.  For example, if someone selects Boston, I want to show the count of items for the Northeast Region.

This is the expression I'm using, but it is not working the way I want it to.  It is only showing the Count for the state I select, not the Region:

='Count: ' &
     Count({<Region = $::Region>}Distinct ID)

I would appreciate any ideas you may have.  Thank you!
