    This study contains election and census data for 732 Norwegian communes in the period 1949-1961. Election returns are available for the elections of 1949, 1953, 1957, and 1961. In addition, data from the censuses of 1950 and 1960 are presented, including information on demography, education, modernization, the economy, and occupational structure, and contextual information about clusters of neighboring communes. Data are provided on the total number of registered voters and the total number of votes cast for the Norwegian Communist Party, the Norwegian Labour Party, the Liberal Party (Venstre), the Christian People's Party, the Agrarian Party (the Centre Party), the Conservative Party (Hoyre), and other political parties. Additional variables provide information on age and educational levels for males and females, the total number of economically active population employed in agriculture, forestry, fisheries, manufacturing, and construction, the total value of industrial production, and the total number of private households and occupied housing units.
