A dataset with 435 rows representing congressional districts and 2 variables
An elasticity score measures how sensitive a state or district it is to changes in the national political environment.
The original dataset only has 2 columns: "district" and "elasticity". I separated the "district" columns into two. For example, in row 1 of the dataset, the original "district" = "MI-5", and I separated it into “state" = "Michigan" and "district_number" = "5". In addition, I used the full names for all states instead of abbreviations.
