Malapportionment and Income Inequality: A Cross-National Analysis

  • YUSAKU HORIUCHI (a1)

Abstract

Samuels and Snyder in their recent article in this Journal presented an index of malapportionment (i.e., the discrepancy between seat shares and population shares by electoral districts) in national legislatures for seventy-eight countries. This short Research Note merges their index with the Gini index, a commonly used measure of income inequality, and explores cross-nationally the relationship between inequality in political representation and inequality in economic conditions.
