The federal government has hired tens of thousands of temporary workers to prepare for the 2010 Census -- a population count that could remake the political map even as the foreclosure crisis makes it more difficult to account for millions of dislocated Americans.

Other states poised to gain at least one seat include Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Florida and Utah.
