Michigan is the only state to lose population this year, according to the census data released yesterday. As a result of this, Michigan loses one representative seat in the House of Representatives. The population of the state dropped by 0.6 percent between 2000 and 2010.

The Midwest has the second lowest increase in population in the country, (second only to the Northeast), and the two areas have the greatest losses in representatives due to the reapportionment. The only state not in these regions to lose representatives is Louisiana, which loses one representative.

New York and Ohio both lose 2 representatives, Florida gains two and Texas gains four. Puerto Rico, which is not a state, has also lost population according to the census data.

More information will come as it becomes available. Schedule of Census data releases below:
