Census of Population and Housing, 1980 [United States]: Congressional District Equivalency File (99th Congress) (ICPSR 8404) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

Congressional districts of the 99th Congress are matched to census geographic areas in this file. The areas used are those from the 1980 census. Each record contains geographic data, a congressional district code, and the total 1980 population count. Ten states were redistricted for the 99th Congress: California, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Texas, and Washington. The data for the other 40 states and the District of Columbia are identical to that for the 98th Congress.
