- 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.
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.
