1 | ```
Lijphart(Z,R)
``` |

`Z` |
Population vector |

`R` |
Vector for the representatives |

The order of the groups in he population vector and the vector for the representatives needs to be the same. If there are groups A, B, C in the population, both vectors need to cover their proportion in the same order.

The Lijphart index gives the largest of the absolute differences between the proportion of the population and representatives in each group.
