North Dakota Compass provides demographic and socio-economic profiles for the 2013-2022 North Dakota State Legislative Districts. Originally developed in 2014 in a partnership with North Dakota KIDS COUNT, the profiles highlight 16 measures focusing on population, household, social, and economic characteristics for each of the 47 districts in North Dakota. Each profile compares district information with North Dakota and the United States.
The individual district profiles are available in PDF format under each year's tab. If you want additional information about your district, such as specific information on legislative assembly members or a detailed boundary map for each of the 47 state legislative districts, visit the North Dakota Legislative Branch website (or click on the map below). Please note that the North Dakota Legislative Branch is not responsible for the content or production of the profiles.
The measures included in the profiles are based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau's 5-Year American Community Survey. Caution is needed when using the multiyear estimates for assessing year-to-year change in a particular measure. This is because four of the five years in the 5-year estimate overlap with the next year’s estimate. Ideally, trend analysis with multiyear estimates should be done using estimates from non-overlapping periods (i.e., 2010-2014 data in our 2016 profiles and 2015-2019 data in our 2021 profiles).
