I need to split about 100 people into n number of groups:
There should be equal numbers of freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors in each group.
There are certain preferences, such as the inclination to drink, that a person fills out in the survey from numbers 1 ~ 5. There are maybe three to four preferences.
How could I design an algorithm that could show the general happiness of people in each group, or maybe the general happiness of people overall?
Most essentially, how would I calculate a person's happiness within his group?
I'm looking to implement this in code, but I can't find a suitable algorithm through research.
