1:761,169, on average, versus Art. I,
2020 Census Apportionment Results Delivered to the President
• After the 1790 Census, each member of the House represented about 34,000 residents. Since then, the House has more than quadrupled in size (from 105 to 435 seats), and each member will represent an average of 761,169 people based on the 2020 Census.

• Texas will gain two seats in the House of Representatives, five states will gain one seat each (Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina, and Oregon), seven states will lose one seat each (California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia), and the remaining states' number of seats will not change based on the 2020 Census.

Upon receipt of the apportionment counts, the president will transmit them to the 117th Congress. The reapportioned Congress will be the 118th, which convenes in January 2023.

Apparently the population of Mississippi (blue on above map, just to the east of the Mississippi River, with panhandle to the coast) has dropped (slightly, about 6000 people) in absolute numbers.

This is in an overall situation where the South is the fastest growing region of the country. And regardless of whether the census-taking system might have had some inherent or systemic bias, it seems that the loss is primarily in the white community. The African American and Latinx count went up, but the white numbers went down by more: about 48,000 in a state of 3 million.

Apparently everybody is moving to Texas. Another theory is that the republican good ol' boys refused to fill out that dang govermint paperwork.

A range of estimates--Low, Middle, High--was produced for each set to account for uncertainty.

great oratory
The worst pandemic in a century.
The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.
The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.
Now, after just 100 days, I can report to the nation: America is on the move again.
Turning peril into possibility. Crisis into opportunity. Setback into strength.
Life can knock us down.
But in America, we never stay down.
In America, we always get up.

Scientific breakthroughs took us to the Moon and now to Mars, discovered vaccines, and gave us the Internet and so much more.
Vaccines seem to have been invented by the Chinese.

So much for the assassinations of Lincoln and Kennedy.

This just happened to appear today on Naked Capitalism. Biden seems to have forgotten about it.
