Abstract

In a recent paper, Wong outlined the benefits of the IPF procedure, which he claimed had received little attention from geographers. This follow-up paper introduces a large literature, ignored by Wong, which uses that procedure, but within the context of another mathematical model. Its application is illustrated with new analyses of recent voting patterns in Great Britain.
