7,000 In 2011; 12,000 In 2012; 18,000 In 2013 -- The Boom Continues; North Dakota In Line For Second US Representative

The Bismarck Tribune is reporting:
  • The Census Bureau estimates that about 18,000 people migrated into North Dakota last year, after gains of 12,200 people in 2012 and 6,900 in 2011.
  • Iverson says that between 2000 and 2003, North Dakota lost about 8,400 residences.
  • Census data show North Dakota's population reached an estimated all-time high of 723,393 residents last year.
Forbes needs to update this map.

The apportionment for US House of Represenatives: US population/435.

The US population: 313.9 million (2012).

Let's make it 315 million/435 = 724,137.

At 314 million/435 =  721,839. I'm sure I'm not the only one who noted this.

This is why some states are eager to fast-track-immigration-citizenship: to save the number of their federal representatives.
