The decline of Swedish Social Democracy 1973-2014

Research project The Swedish Social Democratic party has lost a third of its electoral support during the last 40 years. This project explores the extent to which this can be explained by long term structural change in the Swedish society. It also identifies the political regions where the party has stronger and weaker support than predicted by the structural variables.
