Governments Data, 1950-1995
The data report on the governments of 21 Western countries. Except for France, Portugal, and Spain, the time period covers a country's first government after its first election in the 1950's through any government forming before 1996. Data on France cover the Fifth Republic through any government forming before 1996. For Portugal and Spain, coverage begins after they democratized in the middle-1970's and continues through any government forming before 1996. Cases are ordered by nation and government.
Parties in Parliaments and Governments, 1950-1995
The data report on the governments of 21 Western countries. The time period covers a country's first government to form after its first post-1950 constitutionally authorized election through any government forming before 1996. Cases are ordered by nation-government-party.
The data report estimated left-right locations of median voters of 21 countries at each constitutionally based election from 1950 through 1995. For each country and election, there are six estimated median voter positions. The six variations arise from differences with respect to two assumptions: (1) the left-right position of parties at the time of an elections, and (2) the distribution of voters who are to the left of the left-most party or to the right of the right-most party. Cases are ordered by country, basis of median voter assumption, and election.
Seats and Votes, 1950-1995
The data report on the votes and seats won by parties in 25 countries. The time period covers a country's first free election after 1950 through any election in 1998. Cases are order by party by country by election.
