WASHINGTON, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
Profile America — Monday, April 14th. The distribution of political representation under the Constitution was authorized on this date in 1792. Based on the results of the 1790 Census, the House of Representatives was to be apportioned according to population, coming as near to equal populations in the districts as could be determined. That first census counted a resident population of over 3.9 million people in the soon to be 15 states. There were then 105 seats in the House of Representatives, and the Apportionment Act raised to 33,000 from the Constitution's specified 30,000 the population target for each representative's district. In today's House, 435 representatives serve close to 317 million Americans, an average of almost 729,000 each. Profile America is in its 17th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
