October 2015. Examining patterns/characteristics of 114th Congress incumbents and congressional districts ... the House Freedom Caucus is a congressional caucus consisting of conservative Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives. It was formed by a group of Congresspeople as a smaller group of conservatives. The House Freedom Caucus is described in the related New York Times story. This section provides an interactive table and illustrates use of a GIS project to analyze patterns and characteristics of congressional district incumbents who are members of the House Freedom Caucus. The purpose of this section is in part to illustrate how "political attributes" of incumbents can be analyzed in context of other geography and demographic-economic patterns. Many other similar analyses of incumbent political attributes can be developed and extended using methods and resources shown here. While this section does focus on members of the House Freedom Caucus, it is more focused on the broader issues of congressional district analysis.

See related section 114th Congressional District: Median Income & Housing Value. The same interactive table is used. The associated GIS project differs some.

114th Congressional District Hard Line Republican Incumbents
The following graphic illustrates use of the ACS 2014 data to develop a thematic pattern map of median household income by 114th Congressional District. This graphic makes use of one subject matter item among hundreds of ACS subject matter items tabulated.

Incumbent are shown as hard line republicans (red square markers) and other incumbents (yellow circle markers). Incumbent locations (city-state) were geocoded enabling the view of incumbents by their city-state location. It is easy to see in the map view that there are no Hard Line Republican Incumbents (HLRIs) in California. Click graphic for larger view showing legend and mini profile example.

-- view developed using CV XE GIS software and related GIS project.

Create reference/pattern maps for any CD or region, optionally integrated with other geography and subject matter, using the CV XE GIS software and related GIS project.

The Feature column in the interactive table (shown below) contains a 1 for incumbents who are members of the House Freedom Caucus. Use the Feature dropdown below the table to select only those members who are members of the Caucus. After selecting these members, dbl-click the header of any column to sort on that column. For example, you can see that the 2014 $MHI ranges between $39,872 and $94,749 compared to $24,429 to $115,291 for all members.

How about members in one state? Click the ShowAll button. Use this "step-down" sequence example: select Arizona. Select Republican. Select Hard Line. At any step, you can sort on any column.

About the GIS Project & ACS 2014 Dataset
The ACS 2014 dataset used to create the view above was developed using the ProximityOne Demographic-Economic Data Extraction (DEDE) software. The DEDE API tools were used to extract ACS 2013 items and ACS 2014 items. Those data were then integrated into a metro shapefile using the ProximityOne CV XE GIS software. Once the 2013 and 2014 data are available, wide-ranging analytics can be performed. Map views shown above provide examples. Subject matter items are listed above.

The larger map view profile shows field values for a selected CD (see pointer). For example, the MHI2013 (median household income, 2013) for MO 04 is $43,857 and MHI2014 (median household income, 2014) $45,674. 2014 marks the first time that analysts are able to compare annual change in $MHI (or any other ACS item) for the 114th Congressional Districts.

U.S. Median Household Income and Median Family Income
ACS Income of Households ... includes the income of the householder and all other individuals 15 years old and over in the household, whether they are related to the householder or not. Because many households consist of only one person, median household income is usually less than median family income.

The median divides the income distribution into two equal parts: one-half of the cases falling below the median income and one-half above the median. For households and families, the median income is based on the distribution of the total number of households and families including those with no income. The median income for individuals is based on individuals 15 years old and over with income.

Median Household Income$51,371$52,250$53,657
Median Family Income $62,527$64,030$65,910
