Abstract: The 1996 Knesset Election results by polling station, for the Knesset and for the Prime Ministry include number of eligible voters, actual voters, valid voters and valid votes distribution (absolute numbers) over party lists. Geographical attributes of polling stations and localities are also listed. A work file, which is aggregated by statistical area, has been built. It should be noticed that the Knesset record and the Prime Minister record for each polling station or SA are identical except for the parties data. In the Prime Minister record, the number of voters for Binyamin Netanyahu and for Shimon Peres appears in the Mahal and Emet variables, respectively. All the other parties are scored "0".
