The first detailed look at 2010 census data for Arizona will be made public on Thursday afternoon.
The U.S. Census Bureau will release city and county-level population figures that will detail the state’s nearly 25 percent growth since 2000. The data will also detail the state’s population by race and ethnicity.
The data will be used by an independent redistricting commission to determine new boundaries for 30 legislative districts and nine congressional districts. The state gained one seat in the House of Representatives when the figures were announced in December.
The Census Bureau counted 6.39 million Arizonans last year, up from 5.13 million in 2000.
That made Arizona the second-fastest growing state behind Nevada.
