New York is third most populous state again, but it's losing two Congressional seats

There's a bigger version of this interactive display embedded in wide screen after the jump.

New York State had 19,378,102 residents on April 1, 2010, according to data released by the Census Bureau today. That ranks the Empire State third overall among states for population.

New York was the third most-populous state during the 2000 decennial census, too. The state's population has grown by 401,645 people since then. But its slice of the nation's overall population declined in that time. In 2000, New York counted as 7 percent of the US population -- now it's 6 percent.

And, as expected, New York is losing two Congressional seats. After re-apportionment, the state will have 27 members of the US House. (A House seat will represent about 710,767 people this time around.)

The total national population was counted at 308,745,538. That's up 9.7 percent since 2000.

State #9 is missing from the chart.

@Wert: Good catch. For some reason Georgia showed up as a duplicate of DC when I re-sorted the results. Odd. Anyway, the Peach State is back in the picture. Thanks.

Your top chart left out #9, Georgia.

Great. Our country gains representation from states with the highest forclosure rates, highest unemployment, and no water. Hey, dumba$$es, you think it's a good idea to live somewhere theres no water- the basic element needed for survival?!

... Nano has been great for Albany and upstate, but the ends just don't justify the means. This was public money being steered in exchange for political donations and bribes. It didn't need to happen for those businesses to come here. (In fact we might have gotten better deals if it hadn't.) ...
