2016 State Legislative Districts .. goto top
All 50 states, and D.C. and Puerto Rico, participated in Phase 4 of the Census Bureau Redistricting Program, as part of P.L. 94-171. All states and areas provided the Census Bureau with the 2016 election cycle boundaries, codes, and in some cases names for their state legislative districts. States provided updates for their boundaries used in the November 2016 elections for the session that began in January 2016. The Census Bureau develops standardized SLDU and SLDL shapefiles. The following states had changes to their state legislative districts for 2016: Florida (upper house only), Minnesota, Maryland (lower house only), Georgia (lower house only).

As of 2016, the 6,558 state legislative districts in the U.S. are comprised of 4,629 lower/house chambers and 1,929 upper/senate chambers. Of the total state legislative districts, 1,257 are 100-percent urban (every census block comprising the district is urban), 19 are 100-percent rural, and 927 are less than 1-percent urban. Use the interactive table in this section to view, rank, compare state legislative districts by rural and urban population and geographic area.

SLD Mapping and GeoSpatial Analysis
Use GIS tools to visually examine U.S. or state by state legislative district patterns such as percent population urban. 2016 State Legislative District (SLD) boundaries used here are based on the TIGER/Line shapefiles.
