Abstract

Ecological analyses have declined in number in voting studies in recent years, being replaced by survey data analysis which provides better general insights to individual behaviour. Ecological studies provide insights to spatial variations in behaviour that survey data cannot readily tap. This is illustrated by a study of the performance of Britain's Labour Party at recent general elections, which show just how important spatial variations have been. -Authors
