Description

Calculates the voter transfers between two elections

Usage

1
vottrans(Ro, Rn, v = 1, nw = FALSE)

Arguments

Ro

Matrix containing the results of the first election in total. The first column has to contain the number of eligible voters.

Rn

Matrix containing the results of the second election in total. The first column has to contain the number of eligible voters.

v

Version 2 uses the percentage values without any weight. Version 3 calculates with absolute figures without any weight. (Default: v=1)

nw

Specifies whether the difference in the numbers of eligible voters between the two elections is added to the nonvoters of the second election or not. (Default= FALSE)
