  Legislative Guide - Redistricting
In essence, a compact district is one where the dispersion of population within a district is as uniform as possible so as to minimize the difference between the population center and the geographic center of the district.
However, if districts that were drawn based on the prior census but not the current census are used, shifts in population within a state from one census to the next would probably result in population variations between districts that would not meet the constitutional requirement to have districts equal in population as nearly as practicable.

The remaining appellants do not reside in District 1, however, and they have not provided specific evidence that they personally were assigned to their voting districts on the basis of race.
District 12 would not address the professed interest of relieving the vote dilution, much less be narrowly tailored to accomplish the goal.
To accept that the district may be placed anywhere implies that the claim, and hence the coordinate right to an undiluted vote (to cast a ballot equal among voters), belongs to the minority as a group and not to its individual members.

 Summary Description of California's 1990s Congressional Districts   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The district covers the mostly white (82 percent) neighborhoods on the eastern side of the East Bay Hills of Contra Costa and Alameda counties, as well as the unincorporated Castro Valley area to the west.
With three-quarters of the district's population in Fresno County and the remainder divided among Madera, Mariposa and Tulare counties, this district is 24 percent Latino and 65 percent white.
In the 1980s redistricting, the northern half of this district (Inyo County) was lumped together with most of Kern and San Luis Obispo counties and a sliver of Republican Los Angeles County to form a wildly gerrymandered district (the 20th) meant to concentrate Republicans.

 Georgia's proposed congressional districts... : PrisonersoftheCensus
State legislators in Georgia are currently redrawing the districts of Georgia's Congressional delegation, but by relying on Census data that counts prisoners as residents of the prison location, they are unwittingly diluting the votes of Georgia residents who do not live near prisons.
Georgia's proposed new Congressional districts would each have equal resident populations if they weren't based on Census data that counts prisoners as residents of the correctional facility's location.
Further research would be needed to determine exactly where the incarcerated people counted in each district came from, but this data suggests that the presence of the prisoners in District 12 makes a vote in that district worth 2.6% more than a vote in District 6.

 Minority Congressional Districts: Misguided Policy
The creation of majority African American congressional districts attempts to solve the perceived problem of minority representation in congress, but these districts create a paradox for integration.
The new seventh district was redrawn during reapportionment to include a majority African American population.
