Maryland’s population grew by 7 percent in the past decade, one of its slowest paces ever, according to U.S Census Bureau data released Monday. The figures were released as part of the once-in-a-decade process of redistributing the 435 seats in the House of Representatives among states. They showed that Maryland will keep its eight seats. “I assured the president that the census was complete and accurate,” U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said at a news conference announcing the results.
