345, Minimum reached.

Tickets are from all over the map, including London and Israel.

Crown Heights and Lakewood are the most supportive of our Chabad House :D

Interestingly, there is a pretty consistent average ticket price that moves slightly but stayed within $1 each time I ran an average.

Writing up today's post.
Should we have:
1. Detailed breakdown of tickets bought so far

2. Comparison analysis of 1st vs 2nd raffle, but not as detailed.

Comment in the next half hour

2 is not necessary, as you don't need to compare to that raffle. Yours is a smaller raffle, cheaper tickets but lesser prize. And you are doing it in a much shorter period.

Running the numbers is an interesting lesson in how complex comparisons are.

The first raffle had 292 tickets sold 5 days after it opened up sales.

Using that as the comparison, the 2nd raffle had outsold at 323 yesterday.

If you compare based on the time left to the raffle, the 1st Raffle had approximately 700 tickets sold  24 hours before the raffle ended, the 2nd raffle is at 370.

Correct. The comparitavely low 5-days-in sales of the first raffle might be because at 5 days in there was still tons of time left, whereas in the second raffle, by 5 days the deadline is already nearing; and the comparitavely high 24-hours-left numbers in the first raffle might be because the raffle has been open for so long by that point, whereas in the second raffle it's only been open 5 days at the 24-hour-left point.

It might be more accurate to compare the # of tickets sold at each % of the time that the raffle was selling tickets. (Idk the exact length of each, but if the first raffle was 3 weeks long and the second was 1 week long, one can compare the # of tickets sold at 72 hours left in the 1st raffle with the # at 24 hours left in this one.)

Disclaimer: I have no background in statistics or anything of the like, so feel free to disprove me :)
