Stability Analysis of Regional and National Voting Schemes by a Continuous Model
July/August 2003 (vol. 15 no. 4)
pp. 1037-1042

Abstract—The previous discrete-model-based stability analysis of regional and national voting has been extended to a continuous-model-based analysis in the simultaneous presence of white and concentrated components of noise, reconfirming the previous conclusion that regional voting with smaller sized regions always demonstrates an improved stability over those with larger sized regions, including the national voting in its limiting case in particular. The conclusion remains valid as long as the weak distribution assumption is valid.
