Abstract [en]

The following paper assesses a statistical relationship between Economic Inequality and

Voting Participation among a sizable amount of nations across the world representing all

continents. With an deductive approach, three theoretical standpoints of interest are

presented: one that describes a negative, another inconclusive, and one with a positive

relationship between the variables of interest. Through panel data analysis the study finds

support in favour of a negative relationship in that as economic inequality rises, voting

participation in parliamentary elections decreases.
