Demographics of Proposed Senate Districts

January 26, 2012

Here is a first cut calculation of the demographics of LATFOR’s proposed state senate districts. This is courtesy of stats maven Rasmus Planowski , who took LATFOR’s block equivalency file and  loaded it into Dave’s Redistricting App. Split precincts are allocated the best way possible.  “Obama” refers to two way race.

Hat tip to Evan Carter of Open Plans.
