NYPIRG: NEW CENSUS DATA POINTS TODOWNSTATE NEW YORK LOSING TWO CONGRESSIONAL SEATS
According to new census data released today, the downstate region could lose twocongressional seats, due to proportionately strong growth in the Hudson Valley. 11,957,128people now live in New York City, Long Island, or Westchester, compared to 7,420,974 in therest of the state. With new congressional district sizes of 717,707 inhabitants, a non-gerrymandered map would give upstate 10.3 representatives, and downstate 16.7.
NYPIRG’s analysis shows that
12 state Senate districts and 47 state Assembly districtshave lost population.Of course, legislative boundaries are not decided simply by the census data. Theprocess is intensely political. Unless reforms are put in place, the process will again be drivenby decisions to protect incumbents and to sustain the legislative majorities.NYPIRG urges the Legislature to appro
ve Governor Cuomo’s redistricting reform
legislation to ensure that population shifts
not political ones
are reflected in politicalboundaries.-- 30
 
Attached: 5 tables contrasting the latest census data by regions, counties, andcongressional, state senate and state assembly districts with thepopulations identified by the 2002 census, and a chart showing the upstate/downstate shift over time .
