APPORTIONMENT MAPS FOR SALE


    NOTES:
  1. Source of data: Data for historical apportionments collected from the appendix to:
    FAIR REPRESENTATION; Balinksi & Young, Yale Univesity Press, New Haven (1982). An update from 2001 is now available.
  2. 1910: The House was increased in size from 391 to 435. This also included one seat for the expected admission of AZ and NM in 1912.
  3. 1920: The House never implemented an apportionment following the 1920 Census. Data are included here for comparison and are from the Webster method which had been used for the 1910 Census. Included here is an additional map of the Change in Members from 1910 to 1930.
  4. 1920: For more on the congressional inaction following the 1920 census, see:
    DEMOCRACY DELAYED; Eagles, University of Georgia Press, Athens (1990). "Any reapportionment based upon the 1920 census would give more congressional power to urban areas at the expense of rural areas. Rural representatives worried that the larger number of urban congressmen would then vote to repeal prohibition and immigration restriction legislation, two measures seen as protecting traditional rural America's way of life. Rural representatives made innumerable invidious comparisons of urban and rural ways of life, and they frequently fired stinging attacks at urban inhabitants and the evils they seemed to embody. The urban-rural conflict over reapportionment was a manifestation primarily of rural resentment of urban growth and dominance; urban representatives seldom engaged in any overt verbal attackes on rural America." (p. 118-119)
  5. 1950: The House was temporarily increased to 437 (one seat each) for the late-decade admissions of AK and HI in 1959.
