Daves Redistricting — More 2010 Data

Just a quick note to say I’m back from vacation and have uploaded all available states, except Oregon. [Update: and now, Nevada, too!]

That’s AL, AR, CO, HI, IL, IA, MO, NV, OK, SD, TX, UT, VT, WA.

Beware: TX VTD shapes are over 18MB. In general it seems that the shape files are bigger for 2010. Perhaps they are more precise meaning more individual points.

Oregon: seems that the VTD shape files are not on the Census website where all the other states are. Don’t know why.

There is still no more election data from the group of professors, and VA and MD have not been updated.

Texas: I looked quickly at the state population numbers — 37.6% Hispanic; 11.5% African American. So, like, half the congresspersons from Texas should Hispanic or AA, right?

Have fun.

  1. When will Nevada be updated? And will there soon be election results?

    Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want to get greedy. I really appreciate all you’ve done so far. I’ve had fun redistricting New York (which I finished yesterday), and I’m working through California (now about 2/3 done)…

    But I can hardly wait to do my own state! 😉

    Thanks for everything so far, and please let me know if you need help accessing Nevada election results.

  2. One issue I have with the application is that when I color one voting block, at least in California, it automatically colors other voting blocks miles away, making the district look discontinuous.

  3. Thanks for this. I wonder if you are working on a way to allows to toggle political and demographic shading without displacing our view of the already-drawn districts?
