A Note about Congressional Districts
The data used for this analysis align with Congressional District borders from the 114th Congress, which are unchanged from the 113th Congress, so geographies are consistent between the two time periods analyzed.
About the American Community Survey
The ACS is a household survey that began in 2005 and produces annually updated data on a variety of population characteristics, including health insurance coverage. In total, the ACS surveys approximately three million US households each year.
An important feature of the ACS is that it includes a large enough sample for state‐level and sub‐state estimates such as the estimates in this analysis.
