Massachusetts's congressional districts
After the 1890 Census and starting with the Fifty-third United States Congress in 1893, Massachusetts Congressional Districts were numbered west to east: with the first district in the west (Berkshire County) and the highest numbered district at Cape Cod.
Before then, the district numeration was not as consistent; sometimes running east to west, other times going counter-clockwise around Boston.

History of Apportionment
Source: U.S. Census Bureau.
- The resident population excludes the overseas population.
- Congressional apportionment for each state is based upon (1) the resident population and (2) the overseas U.S. military and federal civilian employees (and their dependents living with them) allocated to their home state, as reported by the employing federal agencies.
