A New Look at Your Legislative District
With upcoming elections and a legislative session about to open, conversations are happening all over the state. North Dakota Compass and North Dakota KIDS COUNT have teamed up to create demographic and socio-economic profiles for the 2013-2022 North Dakota State Legislative Districts. Check out the population, household, social, and economic characteristics for your legislative district. Each profile compares district information with North Dakota and the United States. The goal of these publications is to inform, educate, create awareness, and generate discussion.
