Data for Download
Coauthored with Steve Voss, the FEP has its own home page. It contains precinct election data from the 2000 federal election from around the nation matched with racial data from the 2000 U.S. Census. Funded by the National Science Foundation.
This data set contains all the data necessary to replicate the results from my article, "Quality, Not Quantity: Strategic Politicians in U.S. Senate Elections, 1952-1990," Journal of Politics, Vol. 56, No. 1 (February 1994).
This data set contains all the data necessary to replicate the results from my book, The Paradox of Representation: Racial Gerrymandering and Minority Interests in Congress (Princeton University Press 1997).  One could also replicate the results from "The Election of African Americans and Latinos to the U.S. House of Representatives, 1972-1994" American Politics Quarterly (July 1997).  More generally, this data set contains demographic and political data for congressional districts utilized from 1962 through 1994.  My thanks to Keith Poole and Gary King for providing some of the data contained within this data set.
Southern Politics Project
The Southern Politics Project has its own page. I am in the process of posting precinct and county elections results, sometimes matched with racial data, from a variety of general elections held between 1980 and 1998. See the FEP page for election data from southern states from the 2000 general election. Funded by the National Science Foundation.
If you use any of the above data, I would appreciate it if you would cite it appropriately and send me copies of any papers you write using it at or David Lublin, Department of Government, School of Public Affairs, American University, 4400 Massachusetts Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20016. Thank you.
