Version V1

This data collection, designed to facilitate analysis of voting behavior at the district level and the effect of party incumbency on election outcomes, contains election returns for elections to the United States House of Representatives from 1898 to 1992. Votes from each biennial election are tallied by Democratic and Republican candidate and are further grouped by state and congressional district. The party of the incumbent is also indicated. These data are arranged by election year in 48 separate files. An additional file, Part 49, Exceptions Data, contains data for unusual elections, such as when the winning candidate was from a minor party or there was no Democratic-Republican pairing. These data are grouped by state and district and include the year of the election, the party of the winning candidate, and the number of votes received by the winning candidate where available.
