June 15, 2022 The State News

Michigan State University recently launched the Partisan Advantage Tracker, a user-friendly tool that helps the public assess election fairness and track election outcomes. MSU Professor of Economics and Political Science Jon X. Eguia collaborated with MSU’s Institute for Public Policy and Social Research, or IPPSR, to create software that would help the public measure partisan fairness in elections to the U.S. House of Representatives. IPPSR Director Matt Grossmann, University of Michigan's Center for Local, State and Urban Policy Executive Director Tom Ivacko and Goldwater scholar Henry Fleischmann contributed to the research supporting the development of the tracker.
