This study takes its starting-point in the Swedish referendum about a membership in the European monetary union. The purpose of the study is to explain the differences that became visible during the EMU-referendum, by thoroughly explore macro-factors and their importance to the voting against a membership in a municipal level. In earlier pursued research concerning voting behaviour and public opinion differences general explanations appear which work as an initial position for this study, the creation of three alternative explanation models and the macro factors to be tested. This study has a statistical design and its intention is to study macro-factors in the 290 municipals of Sweden through collecting material from several sources. The material has been compiled to analytical aggregate data and will be analysed through bivariate- and multivariate regressions. The result shows that the differences that became visible concerning the EMU-referendum can be explained from economic factors and economic structural differences between the municipals.
