Which US States to Lose or Gain Congressional Seats Due to Census

Monday's population estimates also preview which states could gain or lose congressional seats from next year's apportionment process using figures from the 2020 census. The process divvies up the 435 seats in the House of Representatives among the 50 states based on population...
Several forecasts predict that California, the nation's most populous state, with 39.5 million residents, will lose a seat for the first time. Texas, the nation's second-most populous state, with 28.9 million residents, is expected to gain as many as three seats, the most of any state.
According to Frey's projections on Monday, Florida stands to gain two seats, while Arizona, Colorado, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon stand to gain a seat apiece.
Besides California, other states that will likely lose a seat are Alabama, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and West Virginia.
