How Representative is the 116th Congress?

A couple years ago, I looked at the 114th Congress of the United States and compared its diversity to that of the nation as a whole. At the beginning of this month, the 116thCongress officially took office, so I decided to take another, more detailed, look at legislative branch’s diversity. Everything's in the visualization, so click on the image below to have a look.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. It was just what I was looking for.

  2. Any chance you'll update this for the 117th congress?

    1. No, I wasn't planning to update it. It would be interesting to see if it's more or less diverse than the 116th though.
