The article titled "Does cohort size matter? Assessing the effect of youth cohort size and peer influence on young people’s electoral participation", written by Godfred Bonnah Nksansah and Zsófia Papp is now available in the Journal of Youth Studies.
The study examines whether the relative number of young people in the adult population affects their extent of participation in electoral politics. The authors test the hypothesis that young people's cohort size has a significant effect on their electoral participation, and rely on data from the World Values Survey and the United Nations Population Divison. The study finds that youth cohort size exerts a negative effect on young people's electoral participation.
