From Jan 1997 to Dec 1998, Johnson missed 15 of 1,187 roll call votes, which is 1.3%. This is better than the median of 2.6% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1998. 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.
