After each decennial census, City Council is required to make changes to council districts to reflect the new population distribution throughout the City. Districts are required to be as equal in population as practicable, compact, contiguous, and in compliance with the federal voting rights act.
The 2010 Federal Census established the population of the City of Pittsburgh at 305,704–a decrease from 334,563 from the 2000 Census–putting the “ideal” district size at 33,967. Due to the population changes over the last ten years, current districts range in population from 28,695 to 39,259.
