Abstract: 1999 election dataset (for the 15th Knesset and for Prime Minister), which was prepared by the CBS, includes aggregates for localities (N=1101) and for statistical areas (N=2358). One file consists of one record for each locality and for each SA. The record includes, besides geographical and administrative attributes, number of eligible voters, number of valid votes and their distribution (in percentage) among the various parties and between the two nominees (Ehud Barak and Binyamin Netanyahu). Votes of soldiers and diplomats, who did not vote at their residential polling station, have been allocated by a formula. The dataset contains additional data for each geographic unit: 1996 Election results for the 14th Knesset and for Prime Minister. Selected characteristics from 1995 census such as, basic demographic profile of each area, its labor force characteristics, level of education, income distribution, and ownership of dwelling are included.
