Presentation On Follow-up Research On Second-Order Election Model Posted

I have posted the PowerPoint file Nils Ringe and I presented in New Orleans at the 2007 Southern Political Science Association conference. The presentation–titled Refining and Redefining the Second-Order Election Model: Protest or Pure Preference Voting in Central and Eastern Europe–may be difficult to follow, especially if you are not familiar with the second-order election model (SOEM) or our earlier research.

As you can read on my Projects page, this research is a follow-up effort to our earlier work that finds the SOEM does not hold well in eastern and central Europe. Unfortunately, we are having a data and small-n problem, which is leading us to have little to report. The project is on hold at least until later this year.
