This data rounds out the last of the estimates data that we will see until the actual 2010 census counts begin to be released in December. The 2010 headcount will be used to adjust apportionment of congressional seats and the preview provided by the 2009 estimates has been said to indicate that Texas will gain four congressional seats with reapportionment.

For more on what the 2010 Census results might mean for Texas, and for national comparisons, read July’s Central Texas Economy in Perspective.
