Visualizing Political Bias in Bicameral Legislatures

A data visualization on political bias in bicameral legislatures

The Economist has created a series of visualizations demonstrating how the structure of a country’s legislature may affect left-wing and right-wing voters. One visualization shows that countries with two separate legislative bodies, such as the United States, are more likely to have malapportionment, where certain districts have more representation in the legislature than others. According to the visualization, countries with bicameral legislatures where the upper chamber is malapportioned are more likely to benefit right-wing voters.

Take a look.
