1  The resident population for each state does not include the overseas U.S. military and federal civilian employees 
    (and their dependents living with them).  This overseas population is allocated to their home states or the District 
    of Columbia and is used only for apportion counts.  These resident population counts are the figures on which the 
    population characteristics will be based.
