Abstract

Voting behaviour in the 1983 general election in Great Britain is linked to people's attitudes and their perceptions of their personal economic situations, as well as to region. Analyses show that regional variations in voting behaviour at that time were in part a function of regional variations in perceptions of economic well-being, but in addition there was variation which suggests regional differences in voting propensity that are not directly linked to the other variables. -Authors
