The U.S. Census figures released this morning showed that Montana's population increased 9.7 percent over the last decade.
Despite the increase, it will continue to have only one member of the House of Representatives.
The district, represented by Dennis Rehberg, R-Mont., will remain the second largest district in the nation geographically, behind Alaska, which also has one representative.
It will, by far, have more people than any other district in the nation.
U.S. Census data released this morning put Montana's population at 989,415. That's a 9.7 percent increase from 2000, when 902,195 people lived in the state.
The state's 9.7 percent growth rate mirrored the nation's rate over the last decade. The 2010 census puts the U.S. population at 308,745,538.
