Simply divide the number of people in a state by 50,000. Whatever number you get, round up to the next whole number. This is the number of districts/representatives that State is entitled to in the House.
If you then divide this result back into the total state population, you get a figure that is the average size of districts in that state. Now compare the state averages to each other.
The result of this is that no district will vary with any other district than by more than about 3,500 inhabitants. This works out to about 7% variance.
By contrast, current districts can vary by as much as nearly 100%. The largest district in the country is almost twice the size of the smallest one. And that's as a result of some very ridiculous calculus. I just beat them at the goal with simple math.
Most of the districts would be within less than 1000 inhabitants variance easily.
