Abstract: The Bureau of the Census has made available from its Fifth Count files of population and housing data aggregations to units corresponding to the congressional districts of the Ninety-third Congress. The ICPSR Archive has supplemented this information with electoral returns at the congressional-district level for the offices of United States president and United States representative for the elections of 1966 to 1970 for the districts of the Ninety-third Congress. The census data can be supplied in the original Bureau format. In addition, several files of reduced logical record lengths have been created, due to the large amount of available data, in order to facilitate selective retrievals from the data base. This feature will also allow the data to be supplied in card-image format. In addition to the Congressional district level, data are also available aggregated to the state level. There are approximately 71,000 card-image equivalents.
