After a summer of analysis looking through all the cracks in the voting of Eurovision 2014, Ben Robertson publishes his conclusions on what the statistics tells him will improve the Eurovision Song Contest in the future
As an aside from the serious natures of our previous editions of Voting Insight, we now take a look at what might have been in Eurovision 2014. Using the data as provided by the EBU we are able to create hypothetical situations and different results based on what we can deduce and assume from the results.
The similarity of voting patterns between jury members from the same country has concerned many watching this year's Eurovision Song Contest, with the EBU forced to disqualify Georgia's jury from the results. Ben Robertson investigates how significant the voting correlations are between different countries and why this may occur.
Ben Robertson continues to look through the results from the juries at Eurovision 2014. This week he looks at the issues of gender, age, and profession, to find out if these are significant factors in how they cast their votes.
For Episode Two of ‘Voting Insight’ we analyse the impact of running order in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. This analysis looks to see if Jon Ola Sand is correct with his statement that ‘there is no significant statistical impact of the running order on the result’ and furthermore compare this impact for both juries and televoters. Ben Robertson investigates.
