The Policymaker’s Dashboard leverages the power of mapping within Virtual Alabama
to provide specific demographic and criminal justice information related to the
districts of Alabama’s elected officials. This website provides easy to understand
data about the population within a district and, currently, the violent crime that
has occurred there for the past several years. Our goal is to continually update
this site with new types of relevant and interesting Alabama data to ultimately
assist our elected officials with making better informed decisions, as well as giving
insight into our communities for our citizens.
The State Reapportionment Office is currently working on new plans for
the redistricting of the State Legislature. This site has added the ability to view
the current legislative districts and compare them with potential plans currently
under consideration by the legislature.
