My article on individual representation has now been published. In the article I develop a new measure of political representation. It is based on a new conceptualization, complementing existing approaches. The focus is on the individual (in society), and an individual representation score is calculated to express how well the individual is represented by the legislature. These scores involve a double comparison, first with the positions of other individuals in society, and then with the positions of the members of parliament. R-code to calculate these individual representation scores is available from R-Forge.
