A Technical Analysis of the Influence of Community Schools in Eugene on School District Budget Elections.
Hendrickson, Les; Meyer, Jeff
A brief examination of the voting patterns in seven budget elections from 1974 to 1978 in Eugene (Oregon) School District 4J reveals that there are no significant differences between the percentage of people voting Yes in precincts with community schools and the percentage of people voting Yes in other precincts. The turnout rate in precincts with community schools is a statistically significant 4 percent higher, however. The percentage of Yes votes by precinct is primarily related to the precinct's geographical location, as is turnout. A short appendix describes the methodology of the study. (Author/PGD)
