Good post! Anyway, when are the total population figures coming out for each municipality? So far, just the the total population, population of each state and congressional seat data are available. When will I , for example, be able to see the population for all of the communities in my home state of New Jersey?

Sorry, I did not see the above post. It looks like the answer to my question is mid-January.

After all, for much of American history, the bulk of the population was in the Northeast and Midwest, but it's only been the past two or three decades that this has started to shift more south and westward.

To jot down the biggest losers and gainers by decade in total numbers of seats:

1960: California (+8), Pennsylvania (-3)
1970: California (+5), New York/Pennsylvania (-2 each)
1980: Florida (+4), New York (-5)
1990: California (+7), New York (-3)
2000: Florida/Texas (+2 each), New York/Pennsylvania (-2 each)
2010: Texas (+4), New York/Ohio (-2 each)

I still don't think its wise to have 700,000+ districts because elected officials will seem even MORE out of touch with their constituents than ever before. Something needs to give before each district becomes 1 million+. Besides, 435 seems like such an arbitrary number.

The real implication of these population numbers shouldn't be for some bragging point, but rather allocation of resources on the political and economic scene. Of course, most people in real life and on CD will miss that point, but its ok.




Yeah, Japan is in real trouble there. In 10-20 years, its going to be a nation of old people with an increasingly shrinking base of those who can provide funding and services to the non-productive part of society.. However, that's off topic for this discussion. All I can say is..I think we'll finally going to see a nation go from one end of the economic spectrum, to the other, and headed back toward the other direction in our lifetime. It's sad, but should serve as a lesson to the rest of us. I think China is missing that lesson, which is why they have 30 million more males than females due to the one child policy (talk about a HUGE sausage fest, eh?)
good post +1

Happy to see Nebraska inch even closer to the national growth rate despite the rural decline in 80+ counties continuing. 6.7% growth rate which is really good considering an 8% decline on average for the 80+ declining counties.

Nebraska's undercount was approximately 30,000 which is standard for each census count for this state. 1,826,000 people now.

Great post by the way, but here's my totally off topic commentary on the above.

I was in this Chinese restaurant a few weeks back and they were showing this dating show in China where 24 women picked a guy based on looks and his story (I'm guessing since I don't know any Mandarin). I thought to myself "Why does show even need to even exist? Any woman in her 20s in China can just poke her head out of the door and have like 30 dates on the spot."

But yes, it is a sausage fest and I wonder what type of social and political effect this will have on China over the next couple of decades.

According to the psychologists : more prostitution, more suicides, more intergenerational couples (we can see already : guys in their 20s with women in their 60s), more homosexuality (all these couples won't be by choices) a porn industry boom (hollywood will be able to export in big quantity ) and more married women abducted.

"Texas is the big winner. It gained more people than any other state for the first time, outpacing California, which had dominated for almost a century."

Since we have some posters who are great at putting up the comparisons; do we know where all the states rank now in population? I know for a fact some states have passed up others to go to higher/lower rankings. The top 10 are still the same:

1.California
2.Texas
3.New York
4.Florida
5.Illinois
6.Pennsylvania
7.Ohio
8.Michigan (Don't know how much longer the 8th spot will be held for)
9.Georgia
10.North Carolina
