Redistricters, start your engines!

The 2020 Census data for redistricting is immanent starting around 2021-01-19, but we don't have official reapportionment yet! The last report from the Census bureau was "early 2021, as close to the statutory deadline as possible". If they don't have proper apportionment out by the 19th, I guess I'll start my redistricting engine based on estimates (or this estimate, or others, or some consensus I put together).

  1. I've started a spreadsheet comparing a few estimates for apportionment changes:

  2. Hey Brian! I'm a data visualization student also interested in congressional districts. I just put together this map with demographic info by district, and I'd love to learn more about how your algorithm works to redraw the lines. If you're taking on random helpers, let me know! -- Cristina. https://app-healthy-districts.herokuapp.com/
