Which Congressional Districts Have The Most People Without Health Insurance?


Data Notes

We have created a county level data visualization that examining the distribution of individuals without health insurance in the United States in the past. Given the political nature of health insurance policy, we thought it would be prudent to create a version the examines the topic by congressional district.

There are mutliple things related to having health care coverage like poverty, age, and employment, but there are additional policy decisions that lead to this distribution. Our hope is this tool will be a valuable resource for decision-makers in healthcare, social services, and urban planning. By providing this information, our objective is to foster informed discussions and facilitate strategic initiatives in these critical sectors, addressing the multifaceted challenges faced by these communities.

To gather this data, I used a python script to access the Census Bureau’s API. Specifically, the 2022 American Community Survey 1-year estimates. I then visualized the data using Tableau.
