    Gallagher index

    Calculates the Gallagher index for an election result.

    js-semistandard-style NPM Version

    The Gallagher index measures an electoral system’s relative disproportionality between votes received and seats allotted in a legislature. As such, it measures the difference between the percentage of votes each party gets, and the percentage of seats each party gets in the resulting legislature -- and it measures this dis-proportionality from all parties collectively in one given election. This collective dis-proportionality from this one election is given a precise score, which can then be used in comparing various levels of proportionality among various elections from various electoral systems.
