Abstract:
The New Hampshire Congressional District Boundaries, 2012, contains the US district boundaries generated based on the 2010 US Census population count. Boundaries were derived by applying district codes retrieved from the NH Secretary of State web site to the geometry provided by the GRANIT town boundary layer (PBNH).
Purpose:
These data may be used to represent New Hampshire's Congressional Districts.
