1992 United Kingdom electoral returns
Electoral returns, selected constituencies, 1992 general election for the British House of Commons
A data frame with 521 observations on the following 12 variables.
a character vector, name of the House of Commons constituency
a character vector, county of the House of Commons constituency
a numeric vector, log-odds of Conservative to LibDem vote share
a numeric vector, log-odds of Labor to LibDem vote share
a numeric vector,
y1from previous election
a numeric vector,
y2from previous election
a numeric vector, 1 if the incumbent is a Conservative, 0 otherwise
a numeric vector, 1 if the incumbent is from the Labor Party, 0 otherwise
a numeric vector, 1 if the incumbent is from the LibDems, 0 otherwise
a numeric vector, Conservative vote share (proportion of 3 party vote)
a numeric vector, Labor vote share (proportion of 3 party vote)
a numeric vector, LibDem vote share (proportion of 3 party vote)
These data span only 521 of the 621 seats in the House of Commons at the time of 1992 election. Seats missing either a Conservative, Labor, or a LibDem candidate appear to have been dropped.
The original Katz and King data set does not have case labels. I used matches to an additional data source to recover a set of constituency labels for these data; labels could not recovered for two of the constituencies.
