This chapter concentrates mainly on the federal level of government, although some attention is also given to the state level. It considers the impact of structural and institutional factors in bringing about divided government, before examining the effects of changes in electoral behaviour at that level. The third section of the chapter focuses on how divided government is managed at federal and state levels.
