Time for some 2020 Apportionment Scenarios

The Census Bureau released its 2017 Population Estimates yesterday and the results show that the Mountain West states are the fastest growing states. Watch out Rhode Island. You may not hang on to that 2nd Congressional Seat much longer. But, will it go to Montana, which lost its 2nd Congressional seat in 2000?

Try out the PSC Census Apportionment Calculator and experiment with various scenarios. One nice scenario is giving Florida 500,000 Puerto Ricans. That tips it to gaining 2 Congressional Seats – assuming July 2017 = December 2020. Here’s a spreadsheet to start with – be sure to delete D.C.
