I have compiled an Excel workbook with three worksheets HERE, and embedded below.
The first lists by chamber the member names, districts, party affiliation, senior (65+) population, and contact information. This worksheet also includes a column indicating if the member sits on a health care/COVID related committee of subcommittee in the House or Senate. [Print settings for this sheet are landscape and it prints to 9 pages].
A second worksheet summarizes that data by chamber, party and member name. It shows:
- Seniors 65+ are 17% of state population, 20% in Republican districts and 15% in Democratic districts.
- Seniors 65+ are 23% of the voting age population, 27% in Republican districts and 20% in Democratic districts.
The third worksheet includes links to the 2019 ACS data that I used to calculate the senior population and percentages for each member/district as well as links to health care/COVID related subcommittees or committees in the House or Senate.
Whether you’re interested in the elderly or healthcare (or not) the listing of legislators, their party, and their contact information is something I have found difficult to find in one place.
NOTE: The Oregon House Subcommittee on COVID 19 had scheduled a hearing on senior access to COVID vaccinations this week but it was cancelled because of the weather. I do not see a rescheduled date this week or next.
