David Duke Campaigns: County-level Louisiana Data (ICPSR 1130)
Principal Investigator(s): Voss, D. Stephen, Harvard University
This collection makes available county-level census and election data for the study of ex-Klansman David Duke's three statewide contests in Louisiana: a 1990 race for United States Senate, a 1991 open primary contest for governor, and the 1991 gubernatorial runoff. These data were the subject of an exchange between D. Stephen Voss and Micheal Giles and Melanie Buckner in the JOURNAL OF POLITICS 58:4. The files available through the ICPSR include additional analysis and documentation not available in the published work, for purposes of verification or replication. The data were collected from government agencies and repackaged in part under funding from Harvard University's Mellon Dissertation Research Fellowship.
These data are flagged as replication datasets and are distributed exactly as they arrived from the data depositor. ICPSR has not checked or processed this material. Users should consult the investigator(s) if further information is desired.
These data are freely available.
