Remember, it regards the House of Representatives in 2003. Wink

Oh, yeah, forgot that you'd mentioned that it had to do with Representatives. Is it perhaps something along the lines of % of incumbents who survived a primary challenge? It seems a bit odd that there'd be states where the majority of incumbents were turfed out in the primaries, but perhaps something along those lines?

Ok, I guess I'll make it easier.
Blue States can be considered as "lucky", red States as "unlucky". The darker a State is, the more lucky/unlucky it is. Have a look to North Carolina and Utah in particular : at the time, they were particularly famous for being respectively the luckiest and the unluckiest.

yes indeed! the first map is of the older senator from each state, the second is of the youngest from each state, with shades representing age instead of percentage.

Sorry, you didn't got it. Wink

This map shows the variation between the theoretical number of seats a State should get in the House of Representatives and the real number of seats it got under the 2003 apportionment. Blue States are overrepresented while red States are underrepresented.

For example, Utah, with 2,236,714 inh. should have deserved 3.46 seats but got only 3. So, it's underrepresented by 0.46 seats. To the contrary, North Carolina, with 8,067,673 inh., deserved 12.47 seats and got 13. Overrepresented by 0.53 seats.

The shading is important; the color is irrelevant.

Note that there are only five different shades.

Well, it's non-political.  Try and think about what the darkest states all have in common, and why Maine is the only lightest shade.

Are the shades degrees of something or are they five different categories with each state fitting in the relevant category?
