The census data released today showed some of the slowest growth in American history. However, some states still showed enormous growth, while others couldn't keep up despite the slowing growth.

As of April 1, the country's population was 308,745,538, up from 281.4 million a decade ago. That's a growth rate of 9.7, 3.5 percent lower than the difference between 1990 and 2000, according to the AP.

However, there were some really big winners, namely Texas, who showed growth in the millions. The Lone Star state gained over 4 million new residents in the past decade, and will claim 4 more Congressional seats in Congress.

Among the losers, Michigan saw the worst growth, actually losing residents. It was the only state that saw a negative population change.
