Every ten years the United States carries out a census of the population．Every family receives a form with questions about family size, income, jobs, etc．They answer questions such as：How many people are there in your family? Do you live in a house or in an apartment? How long have you been living there? Where did you live before this? Where do you work? How much money do you make? The government uses this information to get a better picture of its people.
The last census was in 1980．The population of the United States is now 226 500 000.The population is up to 23 million people from 1970．In 1970, the population was 203 000 000.
The census shows that some areas of the United States are decreasing in population while other areas are growing．In the past, more people lived in the Northeast and North Central areas．But this is changing．Now more people live in the South than in any other area．People are moving from the North to the South and the west．The population of northern cities is down from 1970．For example, the population of New York City down 11%, the population of Chicago is down 12%．In Pennsylvania, the population of Philadelphia is down 14% and the population of Pittsburgh is down 18%．Washington D.C．has almost 16% less people．At the same time that northern cities are going down, southern and western cities are growing．The population of San Jose is up 24%．Phoenix is up 33%.In Texas, Houston is up 26% and EL Paso is up 31%．In Florida, the population of Ft Lauderdale is up 10%．The population of Virginia Beach is up 52%.
