Today the Census Bureau issued the first data release from Census 2010, with national and state total population, and apportionment results. The total population of the United States on April 1, 2010 was 308,745,538, an increase of 9.7% from 2000.
Here’s a map of the US for percentage change in population from 2000-2010, with color intensity proportional to the change. Michigan is shown in red as the only state to lose population, falling below the 10 million mark. Nevada is the champ at 35%. (Urbanophile)
