Note: demographics as of the beginning of the Congress in January 3, 2017:
Democratic women in the House of Representatives wearing white to honor women’s suffrage. (March 2017)

The 115th Congress is, in aggregate, the eldest in recent history.[citation needed] The average age of the members in the House of Representatives is 57.8 years, while the average age of the members in the Senate is 61.8 years.[26]

The most common occupation of Senators prior to election was law, followed by public service/politics, then business. In the House of Representatives, business is the dominant prior occupation, followed by public service/politics, and finally law.[26] Currently 94.1% of House members and 100% of Senators have a bachelor's degree or higher, a historically high level of education for a United States Congress. In addition, 167 members of the House and 55 members of the Senate have a law degree. Only 18 members of Congress have no college education.[26]

The extent of racial diversity in the 115th Congress is 52 African American members, 45 Hispanic or Latino members, 18 members of Asian, South Asian, or Pacific Islander ancestry, 2 members of Native American ancestry, the remaining 418 members of Congress are white.[26] Women comprise 20.1% of the membership in the 115th Congress, which has 109 women and 426 men. This represents an increase of 21 women from the 114th Congress.[26]

Currently, there are seven openly LGBT members serving in Congress. Tammy Baldwin,[27] Jared Polis,[28] Sean Patrick Maloney, Mark Takano, David Cicilline, and Mark Pocan are openly gay, while Kyrsten Sinema is openly bisexual.[29] The majority of the 115th Congress is religiously affiliated with 90.7% Christian adherence. Approximately half of the Christians are Protestant. Other religious faiths of Congress members include Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, and Hindu.[26]

Members[edit]

Senate[edit]

The numbers refer to their Senate classes. All of the class 3 seats were contested in the November 2016 elections. Class 1 terms end with this Congress, requiring re-election in 2018; Class 2 began in the last Congress, requiring re-election in 2020; and Class 3 began in this Congress, requiring re-election in 2022.
