NOTE: As required by the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, the Census 2000 apportionment population counts do not reflect the use of statistical sampling to adjust for overcounting or undercounting.
1. Includes the resident population for the 50 states and counts of overseas U.S. military and federal civilian employees (and their dependents living with them) allocated to their home state, as reported by the employing federal agencies. The apportionment population does not include the resident or the overseas population of the District of Columbia.
2. Includes representatives assigned by Congress to newly admitted states of Alaska and Hawaii (one representative each) after the apportionment act for that census.
