Candidats et députés français en 2002 : une approche sociale de la représentation

Abstract : Analysing sociologically the 2002 French representatives in the National Assembly, this article demonstrates how the electoral process leaves aside specific types of candidates. Firstly it illustrates the discrepancies in terms of gender, age and social backgrounds between the electorate and the elected deputies and the gap between this two populations which grows wider during the following electoral steps : from the candidate nomination, to the qualification for the second round and finally to the election. Secondly, it evaluates through the inferential methods the main factors behind the social biases of electoral representation. What part do the electoral system, the parties and the electorate take in the process ?
