FairData has developed an interactive map showing child poverty rates
by current state legislative districts. Additional legislative district maps show
other socio-economic data from the 2000 census, as well as party affiliation as
of January 2007.

retrieve census data for the various geographic layers in a pop-up window.
Or click on ZOOM TO and then click on the map -- summary data for the district
selected will appear in a table below the map.
To display congressional boundaries, streets,

the Redraw button.
