Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) has stepped up his presence in the debate over the redrawing of the Louisiana Congressional district map.

The Rose Institute said in a statement it was passed over in favor of Q2 because the private college refused to disclose all of its donors over the last 10 years — something it deemed both inappropriate and impractical for an educational institution.

Nation: Data — Delivered

The U.S. Census Bureau delivered the final population totals and demographic data last week ahead of schedule. Each state now has the raw data to begin redrawing Congressional, state and local district lines.

The nation’s population over the past decade increased by nearly 10 percent, the census data show. The South and West experienced the largest population booms, accounting for 84.4 percent of the growth.

The five most populous cities based on the 2010 count were New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Philadelphia.

The Census Bureau said that the fastest growing metro areas in the country were Palm Coast, Fla., St. George, Utah, Las Vegas, Raleigh, N.C., and Cape Coral, Fla.
