Results of 2010 Census to be released

How many people live in the United States, and which states will gain and lose congressional seats as the result of population shifts?

The U.S. Census Bureau will answer those questions Tuesday.

The first official results from the 2010 Census will be released at 11 a.m. ET, including the nation's total resident population and new congressional apportionment totals for each state.

The census determines how many representatives each state gets in Congress, and states base the size and shape of their districts in part on census figures. and will provide complete coverage, including a look at the fastest- and slowest-growing states. The data could provide insight into whether the nation's two-year economic downturn has forced people to move.

You can watch a live webcast of the announcement here.

And while the government may not be known for kicking out exciting graphics, the Census Bureau has posted a cool interactive map showing how the population has moved with every 10-year count since 1910.

The Census Bureau has previously released snapshots of data through the American Community Survey, but that is based on sampling, not on the complete count taken last spring.

      Since the Republicans have traditionally been the ones granting amnesty to illegals shouldn't you be asking how many illegal Republicans we have added?

    Those of us in California would be happy to let you have some of our citizens or non-citizens.

      Send them to Nebraska. We have plenty of room and a low unemployment rate. Currently the lowest unemployment rate in the country.

    You see Latin Lover, your original post has nothing to do with this article. This article is concerned with the census count and what it means for apportionment in Congress. It has nothing to do with the Ethnic make up of this country but of course, you felt the need to make the post that you made without provocation. You're an ethnocentrist and people like you will only divert us from creating a color-blind society. Have a good day and go faulk yourself! 🙂

    Those of us in California would be happy to let you have some of our citizens or non-citizens. That is as long as we get to choose them.

    I'm married to a service member and we are currently stationed abroad. We never received a census either (we were told all APO addresses would get them). No one at our post did (about 90 US families).

      Good job on the first half of your sentence. After that you just turned into a complete loser.

      @bob in PA,

      It's about as reliable as a Census created by a regime that spent us into the gutter between 2000 and 2008. You know the one. 2 never-ending wars, budget surplust to budget deficit, outing a spy to cloud people's judgement of the people who discovered said lie, you know, the RIGHT WING!
