Note: Chapter Three examines the U.S. Senate and Chapter Seven deals with statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, which are not in control of the state legislatures. Chapter Ten explores the lack of representation of the racial, gender, and sexual diversity of America in government. The disparity is easy to see but difficult to measure. Because of lack of good data to capture this underrepresentation, this issue is not included in the final grade.
