Feds release some 2010 census data


The Department of Commerce’s U.S. Census Bureau released the first results from the 2010 census Tuesday, Dec. 21.

The data showed the U.S. population had grown to 308,745,538 people.

Tennessee’s population grew 11.5 percent to 6,346,105, but that change was not enough to alter the state’s U.S. House of Representatives apportionment. Tennessee currently holds nine of 435 House seats.

The newly reapportioned U.S. Congress will convene in 2013.

Seventy-four percent of households returned census forms by mail.


The census results largely determine how federal funds are distributed; more than $400 billion each year are distributed to states and communities based in part on census population data.
