Sources and methodology

Senator
The incumbent legislator as of December, 2008 (includes results of November elections)
Party
Party of incumbent, December 2008
Prisoners (state and federal)
This is the number of state and federal prisoners incarcerated in the district. The Census publishes the number of incarcerated people in each block in Summary File 1, Table P37. We then identified which incarcerated populations in each block were state or federal prisoners and excluded all others. See methodology for more detail.
Black prisoners
The Census publishes the race of the correctional population at the tract level in Summary File 1, Table PCT17B and at the block level for the total population in Table P7. We used these two data sources to identify the number of Black prisoners incarcerated in state or federal prisons in blocks in each district.
Latino prisoners
The Census publishes the ethnicity of the correctional population at the tract level in Summary File 1, Table PCT17H and at the block level for the total population in Table P11. We used these two data sources to identify the number of Latino prisoners incarcerated in state or federal prisons in blocks in this district.
District population
This is the district population reported in the Legislative Data Processing Center's description of the Senate districts [PDF].
Population Deviation
This is the difference between the ideal district size of 245,621 and the actual district size.
Percent deviation
This is the relative size of the population deviation, calculated by dividing the population deviation by the ideal population of 245,621.
Percent of district that is incarcerated
This is the number of state and federal prisoners divided by the population of the district.
Percent deviation without prisoners
This is the size of the population deviation if prisoners had not been counted as residents of the prison district. It was calculated by taking the district population, subtracting the prison population and dividing the result by the ideal district population of 245,621.
White district population
This is the number of people reporting "White Alone" in Census 2000 State Legislative District Summary File (100-Percent) Table P7.
Black district population
This is the number of people reporting "Black Alone" in Census 2000 State Legislative District Summary File (100-Percent) Table P7.
Latino district population
This is the number of people reporting "Hispanic or Latino" in Census 2000 State Legislative District Summary File (100-Percent) Table P11.
