You can now compute your own forecasts based on the bio-index model, which predicts the election outcome based on information about candidates’ biographies. This feature allows you
- See how the model forecast would change for different variable coding.
- Compare two hypothetical candidates against each other.
- See how you would perform as a candidate.
To do so, go to the bio-index model page, scroll all the way down to Table 1, and adjust the variable values in the green highlighted cells. Whenever you change a variable value, the forecast will be updated at the bottom of the table.
