The article set sets out to compare the political culture and civic participation of population in selected regions in the Czech Republic using data from the survey “The influence of Region-Specific Factors on the Formation of the Political Outlook of Voters”, which was conducted by the Institute of Sociology in 2000-2002. The fundamental question it poses is weather the population in selected regions differ in terms of their patterns of political culture and level of civic participation. Almond and Verba’s classic definition of types of political culture is supplemented with one more type – alienation. This leads to four quantitative variables for defining the pattern of the population’s mixed political culture. The level of civic participation is defined as the number of memberships in voluntary organisations.
