Data Exploration: Representation in the House of Commons
This assignment explores how Canadians are represented in our democratically elected House of
Commons. It asks you to consider different forms of representation in the House and compare the
Canadian House of Commons to other legislatures around the world. The first goal of this
assignment is to learn about the effectiveness of our system in producing representative political
institutions. The second goal of the assignment is to gain experience using a dataset to assess
patterns in legislative representation.
