Abstract: The 'Cyfavoring small states' relation of Balinski and Young (Fair representation, 1982) imposes stronger requirements on the nature of seat transfers than the majorization-ordering introduced by Marshall et al. (Soc Choice Welfare 19(4):885-900, 2002). For divisor methods, however, the two relations coincide. As a consequence, when restricted to the class of divisor methods the Balinski and Young relation is transitive.
