Each decade, after it tabulates the decennial census, the Census Bureau calculates the center of population. The center is determined as the place where an imaginary, flat, weightless and rigid map of the United States would balance perfectly if all residents were of identical weight.

Please join the US Census Bureau for a live UStream event discussing the new Centers of Population at 11 AM EDT on Wednesday, May 11. The event will feature Theodore Sickley, Geographer at the US Census Bureau. Ted will be taking questions from the public live during the event on Facebook and Twitter.

To view the UStream event broadcast, please visit: www.facebook.com/uscensusbureau or http://www.ustream.tv/channel/us-cens....

You can watch the Center of Population move across the country and learn more about what historical factors contributed to this movement, on the Census Bureau's interactive map: http://2010.census.gov/2010census/dat....
