Ohio could lose two seats in Congress as a result of waning population growth according to Census numbers.

The figures, which were released on Wednesday, show that the Buckeye State's population grew by only 14,573 people over the past decade, or one-tenth of one percent. 

Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland (D) has warned Ohio could lose two of its congressional seats next year when the 2010 Census is completed, according to the Associated press.

The state currently has 18 congressional seats.

Only five states have grown slower than Ohio has over the past ten years. 

In the latest figures, Wyoming and Utah were shown to have the highest rates of growth.
