Abstract: This data set was obtained through the Data Confrontation Seminar held under Consortium auspices from April 1 to April 18, 1969, and contains selected electoral and demographic variables. The data include, in general, returns for two or more national and/or local elections, and ecological materials for at least two time points in the general period of the 1950's and 1960's. While each data set was received at a single level of aggregation, the data have been further aggregated to at least a second level of aggregation. Japan: Data for all prefectures for fifteen national elections between 1949 and 1968, and ecological data from 1950, 1955, 1960, and 1965. Data also available for all communities in the prefecture of Kanagawa for thirteen national elections as well as two elections to the local Constituent Assembly, and ecological data for 1955, 1960, and 1965. (Data supplied by M. Takabatake) Data errors discovered during the Seminar (or subsequently reported to the ICPSR by the originators of the data sets) have been corrected. However, the data are only partially proofed, and final proofing and updating procedures have not been carried out.
