Census Bureau To Release Results Of Data Tuesday

DETROIT (WWJ) – The U.S. Census Bureau has sent new data on Michigan’s population to state officials.  The bureau will release the information Tuesday afternoon.

Among the data will be population summaries by race, Hispanic origin and voting age for jurisdictions such as counties, cities and school districts.

Lawmakers will use the information to adjust boundaries for U.S. House and legislative districts in Michigan, which is losing one of its 15 congressional seats after being the only state with a population decline over the past decade.

The numbers will shed light on which areas lost the most residents.
