Downward Trends in Socio-Econ-Political Indicators and Incumbent Defeat.
Burlingame, Martin
This paper explores the relationship between declining socioeconomic indicators and school board incumbent defeat. The exploration examines the total sample of 66 districts using groups created from increase or decrease in indicator variables and board member defeat in 1967, 1969, and 1971 board elections; examines two groups (of 44 districts and 22 districts) using new decision rules concerning incumbents not seeking reelection and 1971 elections only; and discusses the results of these analyses. An appendix lists the indicators considered. (Author/IRT)
