We have performed an analysis of the geopolitical landscape of the North Carolina State using the 2020 Census data. We provide a
summary plot derived from an explicit distribution on redistricting
plans. The distribution favors plans with compact districts which keep counties intact.
As the character of the votes considered swing from more Republican to more Democrat, we see a gradual increase in the number of seats won by the democratic party. This responsiveness to the changing opinion of the electorate is consistent with what has been observed when maps are drawn without partisan considerations; either by sampling or by bipartisan committees.
A more detailed analysis can be found in “Analysis of the Geopolitical Landscape for the 2020 North Carolina Congressional Districts.“
The details of the distributions are given in the accompanying
document “Methods used to Analyze 2020 North Carolina State Congressional Redistricting Landscape.”
