These benefits can be operationalized as a decrease in the number of outvoted people in a federal system with majority voting which is an important source of regime satisfaction. The approach originates from the work of Roland Pennock who developed a similar methodology about 50 years ago. Measuring inverse regime satisfaction by the maximum of the outvoted, our results show that regime satisfaction decreases if total population rises. Additionally, the share of the maximum outvoted decreases if the top level cooperates with lower-level jurisdictions and if all jurisdictions of one level are included. However, while the inclusion of an additional lowest-level jurisdiction always reduces the relative number of the outvoted, the effect of including other levels depends on the structure of jurisdictions already intertwined.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Constitutional Political Economy ; 22 (2011), 4. - S. 303-324</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Zimmermann, Klaus W.</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Schneider, Andrea</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Zimmermann, Klaus W.</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
