The U.S. Census has named the new center of the U.S. population: It’s Plato, Missouri, population 109.
The center of the U.S. population is calculated every 10 years based on where an imaginary, flat, weightless, rigid map of the United States would balance perfectly if all the residents were of identical weight. Check out this story on CNN.com to learn more about Plato.
If you live in Plato, welcome! We would like to welcome you to participate in CNN iReport's cultural census -- a series of fun, simple assignments that will help us learn more about America and the people who live here.
On this page, you can share photos and stories from Plato. Your stories could be featured on CNN.
