Georgia population tops 9 million.

The Census Bureau reports Georgia now has a population of 9,072,576, a 1.7% increase over a year ago. The 2000 Census reported Georgia with a population of 8,186,453.

The Associated Press notes that political power continues to shift South and West:

Demographers and political analysts project that Texas and Florida could each gain as many as three House seats. Ohio and New York could lose as many as two seats apiece.

Several other states could gain or lose single seats.

I suppose Georgia would gain a seat using current data.
