Residents Still Moving out of PA, So Will Congressional Districts

Indeed, Pennsylvania lost 25,793 residents in net state-to-state migration last year. That’s 500 residents lost every week to other states. As a result, Pennsylvania is expected to lose yet another seat after the next census (in contrast, Texas is expected to gain three). Pennsylvania could have 17 seats in the US House; less than half its peak of 36 members of Congress.
