Partisan Division of American State Governments, 1834-1985 (ICPSR 16)
Principal Investigator(s): Burnham, W. Dean, Unkown
This data collection provides information on the number of seats held by the major and minor parties in both houses of the state legislatures, as well as the party identification of the state's governor during the term of each legislature in the United States in the period 1834-1985. Data are presented annually and biennially for every legislature. The data from 1834 to 1868 for both datasets were collected by W. Dean Burnham, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Data for subsequent years were added by the ICPSR staff.
