April 27, 2021

The United States Census Bureau is diligently compiling the 2020 Census counts; apportionment results were released on Monday, April 26, 2021.


The state of Georgia did not lose or gain any seats in the U.S. House of Representatives resulting from the latest Census count – Georgia still accounts for 14 seats out of 435. The resident population of Georgia stands at 10,711,908. Georgia sits at the 8th most populated state in the United States.

As explained by the U.S. Census Bureau, “Apportionment is the process of dividing the 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives among the 50 states.” Additional information can be found at

Census counts for other geographies, such as by census tract, and population characteristics will be released by the United States Census Bureau at a later date.
