This chapter provides a socio-demographic overview of the membership based on the survey: the party emerges as a male-dominated party with a high average age. A socio-economic profile shows the party to be predominantly objectively middle class though a majority reject any class identity. The proportion of members who were born in England is around that found in the Scottish population as a whole though the membership is drawn disproportionately from small town and rural Scotland.

Keywords:   profile, socio-demographic, middle class, class identity, small town, rural Scotland
