Abstract: Data for the aggregate data bank were obtained from several Brazilian census publications, including Anuario Estatistico de Brasil and Recenseamento General de Brasil. The data bank covers three time periods--1940, 1950, and 1960--for 22 states of Brazil. For each of the three time periods, data give total population, rural employment, and industrial and commercial employment. Literate population, eligible electorate, and actual voting electorate are also available in the dataset. The data ascertain numbers of industrial and commercial establishments as well as membership in various unions, in art and literary associations, in sports organizations, and in Roman Catholic religious organizations. The data were gathered by Philippe Schmitter and were obtained by the ICPSR from the International Data Library and Reference Service, Survey Research Center, the University of California at Berkeley. There are 22 cases, 10 cards of data per case, and approximately 85 variables in this file.
