A complex network approach to political analysis: application to the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies [article]

Ana C. M. Brito and Filipi N. Silva and Diego R. Amancio
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We constructed networks of voting data from the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies, where deputies are nodes and edges are represented by voting similarity among deputies.  ...  We believe that the proposed framework could be used to complement the study of political dynamics and even applied in similar social networks where individuals are organized in a complex manner.  ...  Both concepts are quantified via networks extracted from parliamentary votes. In [10] , network edges are established according to the similarity of votes between parliamentarians.  ...
