7. Define it as you wish.
Edited on Sun Jun-05-05 05:07 PM by TruthIsAll
Think of it as an aggregate of 5 separate precincts.
Think of it as 1250 individuals spread out over the five representative groupings.

Or think of it as 1250 precincts.
The point is, that is the data we must work with.

Just provide the aggregate percentage ranges.

I know it sounds odd to you, but you will be amazed once you supply data assumptions to the model.

Think out of the box.

The drivers are the vote split, the weighted Response rate and the K/B alphas.

Is it clear now?
