Home / 13th District / Census Data

Census Data

Right now, the House of Representatives is limited to 435 and all members represent about the same number of people, currently around 700,000.  So as people move around the country, it changes how many representatives each state may have.

Census numbers also determine how districts for the U.S. House, State House, and State Senate are drawn within the states.  The 13th District currently encompasses close to 40,000 square miles.

Many programs, such as Medicaid and local community development, were also affected by the data.  A lot of government programs are tied to population, and formulas that depend on census data are used to determine the amount of federal dollars that comes to our area.
