Paradynamics is pleased to announce the introduction of our new election analysis software package, FEDA (Federal Electoral District Analysis). Developed over the last three years in conjunction with election analysts, this programs provides even novice users with a powerful analytical tool that will help you focus your canpaign, and identify hard-see-trends in the data.
Note: all sales of FEDA now include a free update which will include the
2008 poll by poll results from the 40th General Election! Act quickly to take advantage of
pre-election pricing. Prices will go up on October 15.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and the ability to be able to see your analytical data laid out over a geographic mapping of your riding will pay for itself over and over again. FEDA will give you an instant assessment of areas of strength and weakness, growth and decline, for your party, and for all the others as well! Determine where your opponents are vulnerable, which areas have the highest rates of chance, and the highest levels of vote switching.
In the above map, we see the Central Nova riding in Nova Scotia. The colour coded squares indicate the party which won each of the polls. Most candidates will be familiar with this pattern for their ridings, however, the amount of time required to get to this understanding is dramatically reduced with the FEDA software. In addition, it is helpful for creating graphics for presentations to campaign teams, the public and the media.
You will notice that FEDA automatically taks the polls which would overlap, and clusters them into a rectangular grid. You can use the map zoom feature to view a closeup of cities within the riding to see how these areas map. The zoom feature works with all of the analytical maps.
This analysis would take quite a bit longer to accomplish by hand. The map above shows the riding of Guelph and and shows which party had the highest percentage increase between 2004 and 2006. Often, the results of this kind of trend analysis are quite surprising, and often, the overall growth or decline in a riding masks the subtleties of the different regions within the riding.
Poll classification is done by dividing the polls into three equally sized groups. The A group contains the polls with the highest levels of support, the B the next highest levels, and the C group the lowest level. In the above map, you can see the clear distinction between Conservative party support throughout the riding of Quebec. Again, many candidates and parties are familiar with their areas of support, but are you as familiar with the other parties? With FEDA you can see instantly how their support is distributed throughout the riding.
