What is a Population Summary Report?

A redistricting Population Summary Report reports population, deviation from the target value, and the percent deviation from the target value for each district using all of the recommended measures. The report also lists the total population, ideal population, population range, ratio range, absolute range, absolute overall range, relative range, relative overall range, absolute mean deviation, relative mean deviation, and standard deviation. If your plan includes multi-member districts, the report will contain a Member column, and the data will be adjusted accordingly.
