nCube : Quota required under STV Voting

nCubes hold all the statistics presented by the Vision of Britain system, and are defined as combinations of variables. For example, the age-sex tables that appear in most census reports are held as two-dimensional nCubes in which one dimension is a variable categorising sex and the other variable defines a set of age groups. nCubes can have many dimensions, such as age by sex by occupation by cause of death, or just one.

This nCube holds the quota each candidate had to achieve for automatic election under the Single Transferrable Vote system, which was used in University Constituencies between 1918 and 1948. Votes in excess of the quota were then transferred to other candidates from the same party. The quota for a seat was computed from the total number of electors and the number of seats for the constituency.
