Regional reflection of correlation dependence between voter preferences and chosen social population characteristics of Slovakia
Voter behavior is defi ned by vast scale of political, social, economic, cultural and psychological factors given by both long-term historical development and geographical context infl uencing on ultimate voting decision-making of citizens. The main goal of this study is to identify and quantify tightness of relation between spatial composition of social structure characteristics of population and voter preferences at 2010 Slovak parliamentary elections. The regional context of this question is particularly emphasized. Pearson correlation coeffi cient, indicator measuring statistical correlation, in this case of national, religious, educational population structure and also share of postproductive population towards election outcomes was used in order to reach the aims of this research. The greatest statistical congruence of national structure characteristics, less but still signifi cant in case of level of reached education in relation to voter preferences was found out within this study. These fi ndings might be useful for political parties in process of creating party strategy for voter agitation and fi nally for maximizing their election gains.
