Minority Balance Report  

The Minority Balance report compares a particular demographic measure (e.g., black population) for a political entity (e.g., county) to the demographic for the portion of the political entity that is in a district. It is designed to reveal disparities in proportionate representation, and might show, for example, that the proportion of black population in the part of a county within District A is 50% less than the proportion of black population in the overall county. The cost for this report is $3,500.
