The files include returns from the federal elections of 1908 and 1911 and data from the 1911 census, the elections of 1917 and 1921 and the census of 1921, the elections of 1925, 1926, and 1930, the elections of 1935, 1940, and 1945, the election of 1949 and the census of 1951, the elections of 1953, 1957, 1958, 1962, 1963, and 1965 and the census of 1961, and the election of 1968. The election data include the total valid vote cast and the percentage of the total vote received by each of the major parties as well as a total for all other parties. The census data include variables describing religion and ethnicity, as well as information on education, occupation, and income from the census of 1961. There are approximately 5,000 card-image equivalents.
