Economic, Social and Demographic Determinants of Political Participation in Latin America; Evidence from the 1990s
AbstractThis paper uses international data on voter turnout and individual-level data to describe levels and distribution of political participation in Latin America. The paper finds that, while voter turnout in Latin America is rather low, the analysis of more general indicators of political activism reveals that participation is fairly homogenous across socio-economic strata. The finding that participation in Latin America, though low, is comparatively egalitarian seems to partly contradict the perception that Latin Americas history has been one of exclusion and marginalization.
