Variable : Quota for University Constituencies

Variables serve as the dimensions of nCubes, and are generally based on the questions on forms such as the census schedule. However, in the aggregate data held in the Vision of Britain system we do not store the individual responses but counts of the number of each kind of response, so variables are made up of categories, such as age groups.

Quota for University Constituencies
Variable (V)
This variable 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.
