Datasets with different boundaries
Socio-economic data is gathered at the governorate level, unlike election results that are reported at the circonscription level. While election results can be displayed here at either level, socio-economic data cannot be viewed at the circonscription level; please keep this in mind when comparing with election results at the circonscription level.
Election results are drawn from a population of citizens 18 years and older (those who are eligible to vote). For the socio-economic data, the underlying population size varies according to the type of data. For example, the "youth ratio" dataset refers to the percentage per governorate of young people between 15-34 in 2014. Unemployment and illiteracy rates refer to Tunisians 15 years and older. Note: all communications data (mobile, internet and computer coverage) is measured at the household level, with a household defined as, on average, 4.21 people.
Internet access refers to households with at least one member using the Internet either at home or outside.
There are 6 circonscriptions outside of Tunisia for Tunisians voting abroad; these results are not incorporated into the data presented in this section.
The charts section displays two types of data: electoral data and socio-economic data. These datasets are sourced from the following websites and documents:Electoral data: originally obtained from multiple reports published by the Independent High Commission for the Elections (ISIE) and converted to CSV by MourakibounSocio-economic data: the datasets used in the charts section are obtained from the National Survey and Housing 2014. It was the last nationwide survey that The National Institute of Statistics (INS) completed. The sample included nearly 162 500 households representative of the entire households distributed over 6500 counties in different governorates, cities, villages and rural areas.
