Abstract

When there is the desire to organize a consulting referendum in The Netherlands, a certain number of requests needs to be collected to make sure there is enough support to organize one. History tells us that there are people who submit more then one request, which makes all the requests of that person invalid. Therefore, these requests need to be filtered out of the total number of valid requests. With the use of a sample from the total number of requests, the number of valid requests is estimated. This thesis will provide a detailed explanation of the estimation procedure: what sample size needs to be chosen and how the estimator is constructed. The results will be compared to the method used before and to other known methods using simulations. Finally, there will be a look at possibilities to extend/improve the procedure.
