Summary Stats for Public Maps 0001-0068

With 68 publicly proposed maps in-hand (and more on the way, based on our email inbox), you may be looking for a way to compare the public’s ideas to each other and to the current State House, State Senate and congressional maps.

The “Summary Statistics for Public Maps 0001-0068” document available at http://mydistrictbuilderplanexplorer.wordpress.com/reports/ (and below) gives you summary breakdowns by race, ethnicity, population deviation, county splits and city splits for each of the first 68 publicly proposed maps and the current House, Senate and congressional maps.

As always, email us at mydistrictbuilder@myfloridahouse.gov if you have any questions.  Enjoy!
