Summary
This collection consists of a computer program designed to reapportion a legislature or any other body of people representing geographical districts. The program was built to produce the districting pattern that would result from agreed-upon values or the diverse patterns resulting from conflicting values. Input information consists of descriptions of units that would make up the districts, such as county, ward, and census tract, plus additional information for each time an area within a state is redistricted, consisting of both factual and value parameters. The output includes old and new districts along with certain characteristics of each old and new district. The program enables the user to adjust the relative weight to be given to three significant considerations: the relative equality of population among the districts (the one man-one vote requirement), the contiguity and degree of compactness of the districts, and the impact of redistricting on the political balance of power
