CD)--About 200,000 more people live in Oklahoma now compared to 10 years ago. According to the 2020 census data, there are now 3,959,353 people living in Oklahoma. That's a 5.5% increase, and adds up to about 3 more people per square mile. While the population change wasn't enough to affect our congressional seats in Washington, our neighbors in Texas saw enough growth to gain 2 seats, while New York and California lost population, and 1 congressional seat each.
