Does 11 not sound like a lot? Very few bills are ever enacted — most legislators sponsor only a handful that are signed into law. But there are other legislative activities that we don’t track that are also important, including offering amendments, committee work and oversight of the other branches, and constituent services.
We consider a bill enacted if one of the following is true: a) it is enacted itself, b) it has a companion bill in the other chamber (as identified by Congress) which was enacted, or c) if at least about half of its provisions were incorporated into bills that were enacted (as determined by an automated text analysis, applicable beginning with bills in the 110th Congress).
Warren sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Health (29%) Armed Forces and National Security (23%) Finance and Financial Sector (13%) Government Operations and Politics (9%) Education (7%) Crime and Law Enforcement (7%) Labor and Employment (6%) Taxation (5%)

From Jan 2013 to Jan 2021, Warren missed 296 of 2,482 roll call votes, which is 11.9%. This is much worse than the median of 1.5% among the lifetime records of senators currently serving. The chart below reports missed votes over time.
We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events. Legislators running for president or vice president typically miss votes while on the campaign trail — that’s normal. See our analysis of presidential candidates’ missed votes.
