Following the Census report, Texas will gain two seats and Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon will each gain one seat in the US House of Representatives.

New York, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, California and West Virginia each lost a seat ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. Census officials said that “if New York had had 89 more people they would have received one more seat.”

A Census official said if New York had counted 89 additional people, the state would not have lost a congressional seat.
