OMAHA, Neb. (AP) â€” Nebraska's population continued to grow steadily this year, but possibly not fast enough for the state to keep all three of its U.S. House seats after the 2020 Census.
The U.S. Census Bureau released new estimates Tuesday showing that Nebraska's population had grown to 1,881,503 by July 1.
The state's population was 0.67 percent higher than the July 2013 estimate of 1,868,969.
The nationwide population grew at a similar 0.7 percent rate to 318,857,056 this year, but other states, particularly in the South and West, grew at a more brisk pace.
