Provincial Simulations

This page shows simulations of past Canadian provincial elections that use DMP to calculate the outcome. If DMP is used in future elections, it is more likely that districts would be amalgamated than given an extra representative. However, this choice will not have a significant impact on the results produced. Therefore, unless otherwise stated, it was assumed that each district was given an additional representative. Finally, a district threshold of 5% was used to produce the simulations.

2017 BC Election

This simulation uses a reserve factor of 10% and treats BC as a single region. In addition to the BC wide results, a summary of the results for the three main regions of the province have been included at the end. The district level results can be viewed here.

Under SMP, note that the fraction of districts a party is represented in is equal to the fraction of seats the party has won.

2015 PEI Election

This simulation makes use of a reserve factor of 15% and redistricting done by Anna Keenan. Districts have been combined to produce a 28 seat Legislative Assembly, which is in line with the current size of 27. The district level results can be viewed here.

2015 Alberta Election

This simulation uses a reserve factor of 10% and treats Alberta as a single region. In addition to the Alberta wide results, a summary of the results for the three main regions of the province have been included at the end. The district level results can be viewed here.
