Election Modelling is where I put my work related to modelling Canadian electoral systems.
I had the pleasure of presenting my modelling work to the Parliamentary Committee on Electoral Reform (ERRE) on October 19, 2016. This section contains that modelling and written testimony. The next day the committee passed a resolution requesting additional modelling with highly constrained conditions. My report back to the committee is also here.
To the extent that the modelling I did for the Special Committee on Electoral Reform is of historical interest, it’s maintained here. For more recent work, see below.
There are lots of people who want to use Canadian Federal elections data, but no good source for it. Sure, Elections Canada and the Open Government Portal have the data, but it’s hard to find, and harder still to clean and put into a usable state. This project aims to change that.
My current work is focusing on individual measures of equity, similar to how the Gallagher Index measures disproportionality for parties but now focused on individual voters. This section is under active development and subject to lots of change. =
This section is still under development.
