Apportionment Data Release Day Open Thread

It’s your early Christmas Non-Denominational Winter Solstice Celebration present from the U.S. Census that comes around every 10 years.  The numbers are to be released today at around 11a.  Discuss the changes to our state including our additional (maybe 2, if we’ve been really good) congressional seat and changes coming to other states.  Political geeks rejoice!


Here’s the table with the apportionment data.  Georgia gains a seat and each congressman in the 113th Congress will be representing an additional 63,520 citizens (going from 631,306 citizens per congressman in 2000 to 694,826 citizens per congressman in 2010).
