Doubting Thomas's Crash Test

A lesson-investigation. Navigating the site. Working with Scatter Plotter and Gabdulvaleev Plotter

When you have all the data at your fingertips, it's a simple task to convince yourself.

The video describes the interaction with the site of a representative of one of the target groups: an active, curious citizen. Moreover, – an opponent of statistical analysis methods.

The latter, hopefully,  temporarily.

Look for yourself.

Verification of the dataset with the source:

Conciliation results: 

Since the dataset contains elections for more than a thousand districts, the verification with the original source was carried out only for the elections of regional heads. Minor discrepancies detected are related to the peculiarities of data presentation for digital precincts (for more details: in the cards of elections of regional heads).

These discrepancies were not significant.

Digital PECs were not included in Shpilkin's parsings in 2020.

The CEC, by introducing a captcha mechanism on its website, deliberately created obstacles to citizens reading and analysing election results. This, in turn, reduced the reliability of capturing published data using the Wayback Machine and similar servers due their inability to pass captchas.
