Turnout was also low among the young and residents of Scotland, Northern Ireland and London, who were more likely to vote ‘remain’. Did income inequality, poverty and unemployment contribute to ‘leave’ votes in the UK referendum on EU membership? To answer this question, I estimate some regressions to uncover the determinants of ‘leave’ votes and voter turnout. Opinion polls and post-vote analyses (for example here and here) suggested that older, less-educated and poorer people tended to vote for leave. I therefore use a regression analysis.
