Census Bureau Releases Revised Virginia Population Counts

Post date: Feb 23, 2011 10:29:15 PM

The Census Bureau has revised population counts for the Commonwealth of Virginia due to an error whereby the Norfolk Naval Base population was assigned to a census block approximately three miles from the base. You can read the letter to the Norfolk mayor which includes the adjusted population counts for the affected census blocks. We have updated the Virginia redistricting database available at the Public Mapping Project to reflect this adjustment.
