INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Census Bureau says Indiana will keep its nine U.S.
House seats, unlike the one-seat loss the state experienced after the 2000
Census figures released Tuesday from this year’s nationwide count show that
Indiana’s population grew 6.6 percent between 2000 and 2010 to about 6.48
Indiana is one of 32 states that kept all its current congressional seats.
The neighboring states of Ohio, Illinois and Michigan each lost one House
seat and are among nine states that lost representatives.
The results of the Census Bureau’s once-a-decade count are used to
reapportion the 435 House seats among the 50 states, as well as determine
state legislative districts.
