However, the strongest link between age and attitudes is in priorities for increased spending on pensions. As the next table shows, overall support for more spending has once again gone up - by nine points. But among each of our cohorts, support has increased by a great deal more - by an average of 20 points. Notably, the age gradient in 1996 is a great deal steeper than it was in 1983 because demand has increased more among older age groups. a. a. a. Pre 1 9 1 0 74+ 53 124 n . a. a. = not applicable All these findings make it likely that an ageing population will have an impact on attitudes towards welfare spending.

The next table shows that although aggregate reported turnout did not drop between 1 983 and 1 997 (two election years in which actual turnout was identical and historically low), there is considerable change in reported turnout within individual cohorts. 6 So, life­ cycle does seem to play a part here as turnout increases with age, particularly among the relatively young. And although overall there is nothing to suggest that major generational changes are afoot, the youngest age group (who were almost all first-time voters in 1 997) appears to be less engaged than were first­ time voters in 1 983.
