Abstract

Jamaican election results for the four General Elections between 1976 and 1980 show considerable electoral bias, with substantial mismatch between a party's percentage of votes cast and its percentage of seats. No circumstantial evidence of manipulation of constituency boundaries to produce this bias is provided by statistical analysis of the election results. (MPM).
