State Legislator Demographics

10/23/2020

state legislature chamber

In 2020, NCSL conducted new research on state legislator demographics. We wanted to know who voters elect, but also who NCSL serves and what has changed about our members since our last demographic research was conducted in 2015.

Using the interactive map, you can view data for 2015 and 2020 in the following categories: gender, race/ethnicity, generation*, party, religion and highest level of education.

Please note that data for many of the states and categories is not complete (see the “no data” rows). Consequently, any conclusions drawn from this data must contend with those limitations. Also, due to rounding, the totals sometimes add up to greater or less than 100%.

*The years used for each generation are: Generation Z (1998-present), millennials (1981-1997), Generation X (1965-1980), baby boomers (1946-1964), silent (1928-1945) and greatest (before 1928).
