Sample text

Each survey involved interviews with young people aged between 12 and 19 who lived in the same households as adult British Social Attitudes respondents, allowing us to examine not only young people’s views about politics but also how they relate to those of their parents. The chapter begins by assessing the extent to which young people really have become increasingly disinterested in, and disillusioned with, contemporary politics. In so doing, it examines the significance of age differences in political engagement in order to see whether young people now, as in the past, simply tend to become more interested in politics as they get older.

1 might have come about. The first column shows levels of political interest among young people with a parent who is themselves interested in politics. Of this group, nearly half express at least some interest in politics, while only a fifth say they have no interest. The third column shows levels of interest among young people whose parent has little or no interest in politics; under a quarter of this group have some interest in politics, and nearly half have no interest at all. This, of course, confirms the findings of our multivariate analysis.

On the issue of whether welfare recipients are genuinely deserving we find that working-class people have actually always tended to be the most doubtful and have become more so.
