Abstract

Tested the hypotheses that party political support is a manifestation of identification with locality, and that political support, rather than perceived deprivation, is associated with intentions to stay in or move out of one's locality. Survey data from 4,591 16–18 yr olds from 4 parts of Great Britain revealed that Labour supporters in the north of England, and Conservative supporters in the south were most committed to their locality. In Scotland, where nationalism is more directly linked to political parties, those who supported the Scottish Nationalist Party or Labour Party identified more strongly with Scotland and had less intention to leave, but also perceived their situation as more disadvantaged than did Conservatives.
