Taking the plunge: Canadians and their non-voting political activity

Leslie-Anne Keown

Researchers believe that the factors which influence whether or not a person will participate in the political arena can be classified into four main categories: socio-demographic characteristics, sense of mastery, political socialization, and news consumption.
