New Jersey's 14th congressional district
New Jersey's Fourteenth Congressional District in the House of Representatives was eliminated after the 1990 Census. As a result of the Congressional apportionment performed after this Census, New Jersey lost one seat and was reduced to thirteen seats in the House of Representatives.
New Jersey had gained a fourteenth seat following the 1930 Census, and had as many as fifteen seats following the 1960 and 1970 Censuses. After 1980, New Jersey was back down to fourteen seats.
In the 1980s, the district covered an area surrounding Jersey City, and was represented for seven terms by Frank Guarini. With the new lines drawn after the 1990 Census, this seat was effectively renumbered as the Thirteenth District.
