The Massachusetts House Legislative Districts (2012) datalayer reflects the state House of Representatives district boundaries as defined by Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 57: Sections 4. These 160 districts are those used in the Fall 2012 elections. TheSenate Legislative Districts (2012) datalayer reflects the state boundaries as defined by Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 57: Section 3. These 40 districts are those used in the Fall 2012 elections. Given that no one represents these new House and Senate districts until after the fall 2012 elections, the districts will not be linked to the  names of elected officials until after the results of the fall elections are known.  The RPA datalayer represents the boundaries of the 13 regional planning agencies (RPAs) in Massachusetts. Each RPA serves as a forum for state and local officials to address issues of regional importance, including the development of comprehensive plans and recommendations in areas of population and employment, transportation, economic development, regional growth and the environment.RPA
