The 3rd District is located in the southern portion and southwestern corner of the state. Yuma, Maricopa, Pima and Santa Cruz counties are included in the new district boundaries.[1]

Arizona's 3rd congressional district previously included most of the northern portion of the city of Phoenix as well as some of its northern suburbs.[2]

The current representative of the 3rd congressional district is Raul Grijalva (D).

Unemployment

Unemployment in Yuma, Arizona, was 34.5 percent in July 2013, roughly 4.5 times higher than the national average. The unusually high unemployment rate is caused by a large migrant population and seasonal agriculture. According to San Diego State University economics professor James Gerber on NPR, "The unemployment rate of border communities can sometimes artificially increase — and even double — because of a large uncounted migrant population. And border cities tend to have greater health problems and lower levels of education, which are associated with high unemployment."[3]
