As with your last post, why not try -contract- first? Nick On 27 Dec 2011, at 08:16, Daniel Marcelino <dmsilv@gmail.com> wrote:

I dealing with a puzzle that I need some help. I have a data set where I'd like to determine within "r" the most preferable choice (choice1 to n) as in the replication above. So, there are three essential tasks: I need to tally the votes for every id (number), I need to see if the number id with most votes has at least 50%+ of all votes, and I need to discover who's the id the the least amount of votes. After performed these tasks in fly, I need to save the winner information (r and which round choice), I need to proceed dropping id got lesser votes in the first choice, but considering its second choice vote. Test again if there is any id with 50%+ of all votes. This procedure ends when any id gets 50%+ in each "r".
