118th Congress Congressional Districts
The U.S. 435 118th Congressional Districts (Jan 3, 2023 to Jan 3, 2025) have an average population of approximately 763,000 population, larger than three states (see in table). Boundaries for the 118th Congressional Districts (CDs) are now being established by state redistricting based on Census 2020. Elections in November 2022 will generally determine incumbents and party for each 118th CD.
As a resident, constituent, of a congressional district, how do you make your voice heard on key issues affecting you, your household and your local living environment in Congress? Congressional Communities, subdivisions of Congressional Districts, can help Americans better have their voice heard by Congress. Congressional communities are developed by assembling 2020 census blocks and block groups using the ProximityOne CV XE GIS software and state GIS projects. Congressional districts are sub-divided into CCs, sets of contiguous blocks/block groups, that are typically around 40,000 population based on a range of socioeconomic, geopolitical features, geographic and other factors. A set of Census 2020 and American Community Survey demographics are developed for each CC. These demographics help CC stakeholders better understand characteristics and needs of their CCs and other CCs. Unlike census tracts, averaging 4,000 population, CCs nest within CDs and better reflect neighborhood-plus characteristics. Unlike cities, CCs include rural and suburban areas and sub-divide larger cities.
