Poverty and Abstentionism in the Colombian Peace Referendum: Each circle corresponds to a Colombian county. Its area indicates the amount of votes that it contributed to the national vote. The black line highlights the trend: a curve that points top-right means that a higher poverty level corresponds to a larger the proportion of votes for peace (higher abstentionism). Colors indicate the type of county and hovering the mouse over the legend shows the trend to each specific type. Hovering the mouse over each county shows additional information.
When the vote is split along poverty lines, the rural-poor counties are at an increased dissadvantage with respect to the urban-prosperous counties. The reason is that a higher percentage of voters cannot/will not vote.
