ABSTRACT

Our legislative bodies are not representative of the rich diversity of the United States population. In 1999, there were 37 blacks in the House of Representatives (comprising 8.5 percent of the entire body), 21 Hispanics (4.8 percent), 3 Asian Americans (less than 1.0 percent), 56 women (12.9 percent), and no Native Americans (0 percent). By comparison, a House whose membership was proportional to the U.S. population in 1999 would be 13 percent African American, 12 percent Hispanic, 4 percent Asian-American, 51 percent women, and about 1 percent Native American.1 Greater percentages of these groups would create a more descriptively representative institution and might increase substantially the influence these groups exert over policy outcomes.2 However, the House of Representatives is not likely to become more representative of the nation’s diversity unless changes are made in the electoral system or in the strategies of party activists and leaders who now exercise considerable control over nomination procedures.
