Judicial Characteristics and Judicial Decision-Making Study, 1955 (ICPSR 7084)
This study collected information on the judges serving on American state supreme courts and the United States Supreme Court in 1955. Background data were obtained from standard biographical sources, and judicial decision measures were derived from court records. The variables assessed party identification, organizational affiliations, judicial decision scores in over a dozen separate areas, and the career history of judges.
The public-use data files in this collection are available for access by the general public. Access does not require affiliation with an ICPSR member institution.
