A nonasymptotic Condorcet jury theorem
This paper provides first the condition under which the majority of an odd number of jurists is more likely to choose the better of two alternatives than a single jurist selected at random from the jurists, given that each jurist has a probability larger than one half of choosing correctly, and second that the same inequality holds for a subset of an odd number of jurists chosen at random from the original group.
