Abstract:With an increasing popularity and usage of Voting Advice Applications in Europe, the aim of this study is to determine what social categories of the population make use of Voting Advice Applications and if the use differs with regard to seven selected European countries Belgium, Estonia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands and Switzerland. With different hypotheses, the usage of the Voting Advice Applications will be compared concerning the following variables: gender, age, level of education and political interest. This will be done by a literature review and meta-analysis. In short, the outcome of this paper shows that there are differences between the defined social categories, so they do not make use of the Voting Advice Applications in equal numbers. Further, these differences are found in all countries, so there are patterns in the usage, as well as in the differences and there is a profile of the typical VAA user.
