Importing Constituents: Prisoners and Political Clout in New York

by Peter Wagner
April 22, 2002

This report was the first district-by-district analysis of prison-based gerrymandering.

Note: The legislature amended its proposed districts the same day this report was released, so this report was subsequently revised on May 20, 2002 to reflect those new proposed districts. The report discusses these proposed districts which were later passed into law. In January 2005, for the benefit of other researchers adapting this report to their own work, we prepared a further research and methodology discussion and reprocessed the original data was to create Figures 12, 13, 14 and 15.
