Census estimates released Wednesday show Ohio’s population gained slightly over the last decade, but only by 1.7 percent, while the nation as a whole grew nine percent. If the 2010 census numbers are close to those estimates, Ohio will likely lose two congressional seats, and be the only state to lose that many.
