Abstract
This data collection contains information for elections in specified countries from the beginning of competitive national elections until December of 1981. Included are the United States presidential election returns and votes for members of the lower houses of parliament in the remaining countries in the survey. Votes are recorded for every party that had at least once secured 1 percent or more of the valid vote in a national election. Some parties with fewer votes are included when this aids crossnational comparison, or when the separatist or regional character of the party may lead it to regard its own "nation" as smaller than the total electorate. The data are contained in three files. Part 4, Summary Information for Each Election [Year], contains summary information for each election, such as the size of the electorate, turnout, valid and invalid votes, total votes, and the number of seats in the legislature. Part 5, Number of Votes Cast for Each Party for Each Election [Votes], contains the number of votes cast for each party at each election. Part 6, Number of Seats Won by Each Party at Each Election [Seats], contains the number of seats won by each party at each election and the total number of seats in the legislature. Parts 1-3 are documentation files.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR08247.v1
