Update: Check out this free resource with Census 2010 data & graphs for states, counties and places.
While the US Census Bureau has published the Census 2010 state population data using an awesome interactive map, I wanted to see the population of states compared to other states.
So below is a simple infographic that uses stick figure men to show the population distribution of the United States per the new census data. Click on the images to enlarge.
You can use this infographic for free in your presentations and reports (commercial & noncommercial reuse without modification) here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cubitplanning/5327640656/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/cubitplanning/5327636354/
Do You want the Census 2010 State Population raw data?
You could go to the Census 2010 page and download the data from their website as a CSV. Or you can get the cleaned up Excel file that I made with this data on Slideshare. The Excel file has population data and percentage change data for years 1910 to 2010 for the United States, US regions and all states.
What do you think? Any surprises in the Population of States infographic above, or is it pretty much what you expected?
