The U.S. Census Bureau is required under the constitution to count every American once each 10 years, to ensure that Congressional representation is evenly spread out.

 

The 2010 census forms were turned in April 1, 2010. In December, the bureau released state-by-state population data, which will be used to redistrict the U.S. House of Representatives.

 

Beginning in February, it will release much more detailed information, clear down the level of individual blocks, about population, race, income, housing and other matters.

 

Data will be released throughout the first half of 2011. The Telegraph will use that information to take a look at our area in stories to be collected on this page.
