SORRIBAS, Patricia  and  BRUSSINO, Silvina. Political Participation: discriminant contribution of ideological attitudes, values and socio-psychological variables. Rev. psicol. (Lima) [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.1, pp. 311-345. ISSN 0254-9247.

This paper identifies variables that discriminate between participants and non-participants considering electoral and non-electoral dimensions of political participation in Córdoba, Argentina. A study was conducted by survey on a representative sample of the population (N = 450). The discriminant analysis allowed recognizing the contribution of right-wing authoritarianism (RWA), collectivism, political collectivism, political interest and of participatory measure of "political efficacy", to such differentiation in two dimensions of participation: electoral-campaign and contact with organizations and political figures. These results show the relationship of RWA with different political behavior of party preferences; and verify the relationship of different values and a participatory measure of "political efficacy" with broad participation repertoires.

Keywords : political participation; right-wing authoritarianism; social dominance orientation; collectivism and individualism; political efficacy.
