The Roll Call Clout Index (113th Congress)

by David Meyers, Roll Call April 21, 2015

Since 1990, Roll Call has been tracking the potential influence each state has on national affairs. The largest states regularly rank at the top, but not when measured on a per-lawmaker basis.

Total Clout Index: States are scored from 1 to 100 using a formula that accounts for a wide variety of criteria, including size of the delegation, seniority, number of full committee chairmen and ranking members, and per capita federal spending received.

Clout Per Member Index: Also scored from 1 to 100, this is the indexed result of the state's Total Clout score divided by the number of members of Congress representing the state. This number gives you a sense of the state's influence relative to its population.

Total Clout Index 100=highest Rank Clout Per Member Index 100=highest Rank Population
