Abstract

This article is an attempt to apply a model of analysis developed in Western sociology to Polish data - the model which concerns the effect of class membership on electoral voting. Stability of this effect over time is viewed, here - as empirical evidence in favour of persistent class divisions. This study compares the persistence of this effect between 1991 and 1997 by analysing data from two surveys of random national samples, carried out in 1992 and in 1998. The results suggest that class membership did indeed have a significant effect on voting behaviour. They also revealed that this relationship was in 1998 just as strong as in 1998. This suggests that a new dimension has emerged in social stratification in Poland, giving no support to the recurrent claims of Western sociologists that classes are dying.
