Center of Population Project

Berntsen International, Inc., in cooperation with the National Geodetic Survey (NGS), is producing commemorative markers to officially monument the 2000 Census State Centers of Population.  This project began with the marking in the 2000 US Center of Population on May 2, 2001.  Since that time many states have worked with Berntsen to design a unique marker for each state.
