Roper, R. T. (1980). Jury size and verdict consistency: “A line has to be drawn somewhere”? Law and Society Review, 14, 977-995.

Viable minorities (2+) much more likely in larger juries; frequency of hanging and verdict reversal higher with viable minority (no reversals occurred without one). Larger juries with viable minority more likely to hang; smaller juries more likely to reverse.
