The Importance of Place: explaining the characteristics underpinning the Brexit vote across different parts of the UK

Post-referendum analysis has highlighted the importance of demographic, economic and cultural factors on individuals’ vote. In this note, we consider the importance of place; highlighting the extent to which those same factors matter across 378 of Britain’s 380 local authorities. We test the strength of the relationship between these different factors and the vote while holding all else constant (using a series of regression models) for England, Wales and Scotland.
