An Empirical Analysis of Party Choice in the Netherlands

  • Arthur J. H. C. Schram
Part of the Studies in Contemporary Economics book series (CONTEMPORARY)


Having discussed the relationship between a number of demographic variables and the decision to vote or abstain in the previous chapter, we now turn to the subsequent matter of party choice. Using the variables of the preceding analyses, the effect of these variables on individual party choice in the Netherlands will be investigated. A multinomial logit model will be applied to this purpose. The model will include the possibility of a voter abstaining in two different ways, to be explained later.
