Many geographical studies of voting patterns have produced results consistent with what is commonly termed the neighbourhood effect. This note suggests that further investigation of that effect is needed, and provides a typology of spatial-structural effects. It also uses an improved methodology to test for the existence of some of those effects at the 1977 Australian general election.
