We are concluding the ongoing series of posts on the compartmental voter model. As in  we will conclude with comparing the model against UK census data. Though note that the interactive app does not allow for the comparison - it just allows to generate semi-realistic spatial rank-size distributions.
Comparison figures from the article
All of the following figures report spatial rank-size distributions for the empirical data (black curves). While the simulation data is represented by the red shaded area, which shows 95% confidence interval. While the agreement is not excellent, the differences are quite easy to explain - not all socio-demographic categories (social identities) are as important when making choice on where to live.
The app we make available with this post is quite similar to the one from the earlier post. Yet this one has larger preset \( T \) value, which accompanied buy UI elements, which allow to make agent types statistically distinguishable. Note that this app is somewhat resource hungry and thus might be quite slow.
