This project aims to identify the causal effect of income on political participation of individuals. Therefore, firstly, the mechanisms by which different measures of income (household income, individual income, hourly wage) can influence political participation will be derived from the literature. Secondly, based on the Rubin Causal Model and its graphical representation in (D)irected (A)cicliy (G)raphs the identification of the causal effects of interest will be realised by conditioning or keeping constant all confounding features derived from literature.
