Ecological analysis of voting patterns in Britain has not tested the embourgeoisement thesis, which is that the more affluent members of the working class tend to vote Conservative rather than Labour. A test of that thesis, using 1971 Census data, suggests its validity at the 1974 (February) general election. -Author
