The Census Bureau is expected to release data this week that Michigan lawmakers will use to redraw district maps for the Legislature and the state's U.S. House delegation.
Among the data will be population summaries by race, Hispanic origin and voting age for jurisdictions such as counties, cities and school districts.
District lines are adjusted following each census to reflect population shifts within the preceding 10 years. Michigan is the only state whose population fell in the last decade and will lose one of its 15 U.S. House seats. Legislators will use the census data to craft new district boundaries.
Census officials haven't said which day the report will be released. It will be posted online within 24 hours after delivery to Gov. Rick Snyder and legislative leaders.
