The Census figures showing the population of the U.S. and the number of people living in each state were released in Washington Tuesday.

The figures will be used to determine how many members of Congress are allotted to each state.

The manager of the Alabama Data Center at the University of Alabama, Annette Watters, says Alabama is expected to keep its seven congressional seats, but has not grown enough to get another seat in Congress. The same is true in Mississippi.

The spokesman for the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, Larry Childers, says Alabama's growth has been in line with the national average.
