Kentucky Census Figures

The U.S. Census Bureau is reporting that Kentucky had modest population growth over the past decade and doesn't face the loss of a congressional seat.

The state's population grew by 7.4 percent, from 4,041,769 to 4,339,367 between 2000 and 2010.

The once-a-decade count will be used to reapportion the 435 U.S. House seats among the 50 states. The last time Kentucky lost a congressional seat was after an unfavorable 1990 Census count. That reduced the state's congressional districts from seven to the current six.
