2010 Census Results – US Census 2010 Findings And Data

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

The data collected for the 2010 Census was released today, bringing with it great changes through the reapportionment of congressional districts, as well as several other interesting population findings.

Republican-leaning states in the South and West that experienced a population boom over the past decade will gain political clout, while some historically Democratic states in the Rust Belt will lose it, according to Census Bureau figures released Tuesday aimed at ensuring proportional representation in the House.

…The slowing pace of population growth in the Northeast is a decades-long trend spurred in part by the decline of manufacturing jobs in the region. The faster-growing South and West regions will gain additional House seats, as companies have been shifting jobs there in response to financial incentives by state and local governments and the lack of strong labor unions.
