There are a few exceptions, but red states tended to be undercounted, and blue states over counted. Bias by the Census Bureau, or methodological error? I don't trust them, and neither should you. The federal bureaucracy is too dominated by Democrats. A commenter at Althouse analyses:
Using all figures, Minnesota would have lost a House seat (and electoral vote) to Florida, Rhode Island would have lost a seat to Texas, and Colorado would have lost a seat to Tennessee.
And another 3,300 Idahoans would have given that state one from California. the next seat to move would have been for California to lose a seat to Idaho.
If I only use the differences considered "Statistically Significant", only the first two changes would have happened: MN -1, RI -1, FL +1, TX+1. And 8500 more Tennesseans would have taken a seat from NY. So the miscounting helped Blue States at the expense of Red States.
