The purpose of this text is to find an answer to the question of where Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia enjoys the highest degree of support within the Czech Republic, and whether this support has or has not been stable over the last sixteen years. The basic data file is made up of election results since 1990 compiled by district. The distribution of electoral support will be correlated with selected socioeconomic statistics such as rate of unemployment, suicides, divorces, average wages, and religious faith. On this basis the text will analyze the interdependence of electoral behaviour.
