About the project
Each year, around 7500 children in Amsterdam (Netherlands), aged 11 or 12 years, have to choose which high school to attend. The schools use an algorithm to allocate the pupils as well as they can. They need to balance preferences with limited capacity of schools that are in high demand. OSVO, the platform of schools, asked us to analyze the outcome of the algorithm. What does it tell about demand (number and level of pupils and their preferences) and supply (capacity of schools, for different levels)? We compiled a report to present and visualize the outcomes.
