The Assembly Election 2016 changed the political make up of Wales. The number of seats won in this election and the change from 2011 are as follows:
- Labour: 29 (down 1)
- Plaid Cymru: 12 (up 1)
- Conservatives: 11 (down 3)
- UKIP: 7 (up 7)
- Liberal Democrats 1: (down 4)
Constituencies are roughly the same size in terms of the number of residents, but vary considerably in land area from large rural areas with a low population density to much smaller densely populated urban areas, especially in south Wales.
This infographic aims to show the election results in Wales from both a traditional land area based approach, and a more proportional method using the resident population of the constituencies and regions.
