UPDATE: U.S. Census Bureau Announces 2010 Census Population Counts

The U.S. Census Bureau announced today that the 2010 Census showed the resident population of the United States on April 1, 2010, was 308,745,538.

The resident population represented an increase of 9.7 percent over the 2000 U.S. resident population of 281,421,906.
The most populous state was California (37,253,956); the least populous, Wyoming (563,626). The state that gained the most numerically since the 2000 Census was Texas (up 4,293,741 to 25,145,561) and the state that gained the most as a percentage of its 2000 Census count was Nevada (up 35.1% to 2,700,551).

Regionally, the South and the West picked up the bulk of the population increase, 14,318,924 and 8,747,621, respectively. But the Northeast and the Midwest also grew: 1,722,862 and 2,534,225.
Original post: At 11 AM ET, the Census Bureau will release the "resident population for the nation and the states as well as the congressional apportionment totals for each state".

Here is a cool graphic from the Census Bureau (that will be updated with the 2010 data). Note: Census page is here for larger version.

I'm looking forward to the data on housing units (not released today).
