Book on data about Indian elections released at World Book Fair
New Delhi, Jan 8 (IANS) A book with all data about parliamentary elections in India, constituency wise, was released at the ongoing World Book Fair here on Monday.
"Election Atlas of India", whose foreword has been written by former Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi, also describes alteration in constituencies following the delimitations and also during the reorganization of states.
"The Atlas uses statistical data collected and collated at various levels about electors, candidates, gender and marginalized sections in terms of electoral participation and many other consequential factors related to elections. These new parameters and aspects are depicted in the form of impressive graphs, charts and thematic maps based on GIS technology with tremendous clarity," said Zaidi in the book by Datanet India - an IT-enabled organization disseminating socio- economic and electoral statistical data.
