The Census Bureau has released its 2010 reapportionment numbers. All of today’s data dump can be seen here; the most important items of data are here, in the form of the map showing today’s winners and losers.
If this graph looks familiar, I’m using the last few rounds of Election Data Services projections as a yardstick for the actual results. (Kudos to them — or to the Census Bureau’s annual estimates, really. They basically nailed it.)
|Arizona||1||1||1 / 2||2||2|
|California||0||0||-1 / 0||-1 / 0||0 / 1|
|Florida||2||2||1||1 / 2||1 / 2|
|Minnesota||0||0||-1||-1||-1 / 0|
|North Carolina||0||0||0||0 / 1||0 / 1|
|Oregon||0||0||0||0 / 1||1|
|South Carolina||1||1||1||1||0 / 1|
|Texas||4||4||3 / 4||4||4|
A few various other tidbits shared at today’s news conference: the fastest growth rates, among states, were Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, and Texas. Slowest growth were Michigan (the only one to decline since 2000), Rhode Island, Louisiana, Ohio, and New York. With a national population of 308,745,538, the average House district will have 710K constituents (up from 646K in 2000).
Gentlemen, start your redistricting engines!
UPDATE: Courtesy of Jeffmd, we’ve got the last 15 and first 15 (in other words, which states were most on the bubble, in order). Minnesota was the narrowest escapee, holding its 8th seat at North Carolina’s expense by less than 15,000 people.
