The state of Texas will gain two more seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and the state of California will lose one for the first time in its history, after new census data shows the population shifts of U.S. states over the past decade.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau's results of its decennial survey, the overall population has risen 7.4% to 331,449,281 since last count in 2010, showing the second-lowest increase in the nation's history.

The initial numbers released Monday also pointed to which states will win or lose congressional seats due to results.

Texas was the biggest winner, adding two House seats, while Florida, Colorado, Montana, North Carolina, and Oregon will each gain one seat.
