I am looking for data on the relationship between demography (mainly indicators of knowledge such as formal education, rural/urban residency, salary) and political preference, preferably in the UK or the EU as a whole.

My aim is to demonstrate the correlation between these two and model potential election outcomes should the suffrage be limited.

Could you please suggest any?


Two resources you might consider are:


Check this collection of static and real-time data sets: http://www.oecd.org/statistics. Most indicators should be on a per-country (including per-EU-country) basis.

Also, see:


The European Values Study provides this information. The microdata is freely available.

You can consider it as a substitute to the European Social Survey mentioned in this same thread. Or as a complement, if you want to check the robustness of your findings.
