Resident Population


The data shown in these tables include the resident population of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico for April 1, 2000 (Census 2000) and for April 1, 1990 (1990 Census). Consistent with the January 1999 U.S. Supreme Court ruling (Department of Commerce v. House of Representatives, 525 U.S. 316, 119 S. Ct. 765 (1999)), the resident population counts for April 1, 2000 do not reflect the use of statistical sampling to correct for overcounting or undercounting.

An area's resident population consists of those persons "usually resident" in that particular area (where they live and sleep most of the time). A state's apportionment population, on the other hand, is the sum of its resident population and a count of overseas U.S. military and federal civilian employees (and their dependents living with them) allocated to the state, as reported by the employing federal agencies.
