TL;DR: In this article, the authors proposed a simple yet new formula for estimating national seat shares and quantifying seat biases in elections employing the Jefferson-D'Hondt (JDH) method for seat allocation.
Abstract: We propose a simple yet new formula for estimating national seat shares and quantifying seat biases in elections employing the Jefferson–D’Hondt (JDH) method for seat allocation. It is based solely on the national vote shares and fixed parameters of the given electoral system. The proposed formula clarifies the relationship between seat bias on the one hand, and the number of parties and the number of districts on the other. We demonstrate that the formula provides a good estimate of seat allocations in real-life elections even in the case of minor violations of the underlying assumptions. With that aim in mind, we have tested it for all nine EU countries that employ the JDH method in parliamentary elections. Moreover, we discuss the applications of the formula for modeling the effects of vote swings, coalition formation and breakup, spoiler effects, electoral engineering, artificial thresholds and political gerrymandering. By not requiring district-level vote shares, our formula simplifies electoral simulations using the JDH method.

TL;DR: In this article, a simple and new formula for estimating national seat shares in multi-district elections employing the Jefferson-D'Hondt method for seat allocation solely on the basis of the national vote shares and fixed parameters of the electoral system.
Abstract: We propose a simple and new formula for estimating national seat shares in multidistrict elections employing the Jefferson-D'Hondt method for seat allocation solely on the basis of the national vote shares and fixed parameters of the electoral system. The proposed formula clarifies the relationship between seat bias and both the number of parties and the number of districts. We discuss how our formula differs from the simple generalization of the single-district asymptotic seat bias formulae and what assumptions must hold for our method to give exact results. We further demonstrate that despite minor violations of those assumptions, the formula provides a good estimate of actual seat allocations for all EU countries that have a national party system and employ the Jefferson-D'Hondt seat allocation method in multi-district parliamentary elections, i.e., Croatia, the Czech Republic, Finland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, and Spain. Moreover, we show that the formula constitutes a generalization and extension of the McGhee-Stephanopoulos efficiency gap test for political gerrymandering. Finally, we present a number of additional applications of the formula for the evaluation of political strategies.
