Consitituencies: Leave or Remain

One of the most important issues in the 2019 general elections will be Brexit; that’ why its been called. Polls are proving inaccurate so the only data we have is the 2016 Referendum which was counted and results released at Local Authority level. I am deeply interested in knowing how consitiuencies votes and I am not alone. Here are my notes.

  1. I found this site, http://democraticdashboard.com which has a lot of data including presumably an estimated figure for leave/remain. It has a search engine for location.
  2. I am pointed at Chris Hanretty and his blog article on making these estimates. He published in a peer reviewed journal, JEPOP, and here is its landing page and abstract; it’s behind a pay wall. The blog article has three all constituency spreadsheets.

Also,

  1. Final estimates of the Leave vote, or ‘Area interpolation and the UK’s referendum on EU membership’, by Chris Hanretty, on Medium in which he posts three spreadsheets detailing the referendum results by CLP.
  2. Mapping the Brexit vote  by Chris Green, about Maps and results

The image has been taken from the Independent, it has been cropped, and I have amended the colour representing Leave to the more usual yellow.
