The Relationship between Income and Education and Support for Democracy in Six Arab Countries
Doko, Amer Mahdi
Using public opinion survey data from Arab Barometer Project Wave I, this study investigates the relationship income and education and support for democracy in six Arab countries: Yemen, Morocco, Palestine, Algeria, Lebanon, and Jordan. Unlike related studies, this study focuses specifically on the Arab world and uses individual-level instead of country-level data. Some previous studies using country-level data found no relationship between income and education on the one hand and democracy on the other, when controlling for country fixed effects. This study confirms this finding, concluding that the relationship disappears in a fully specified model that includes country controls.
