Linek, Lukáš, Pat Lyons. 2008. Politická informovanost občanů: teorie, měření a role při zkoumání politických postojů. Sociologické studie / Sociological Studies 08:1. Praha: Sociologický ústav AV ČR, v.v.i. 131 s. ISBN 978-80-7330-137-8.

This study explores political awareness of Czech citizens from the point of view of both its distribution within the society, its dimensionality and sources, and its effect on political attitudes and their constraints. The study shows that Czech citizens know most about local and national politics and political players, and are least informed about international affairs. Moreover, the distribution of political knowledge is systematically biased and this results in specific forms of political inequality. These political knowledge differences also result in differences in the level of constraints between political attitudes.
