  • Abstract

    This collection makes available county-level census and election data for the study of ex-Klansman David Duke's three statewide contests in Louisiana: a 1990 race for United States Senate, a 1991 open primary contest for governor, and the 1991 gubernatorial runoff. These data were the subject of an exchange between D. Stephen Voss and Micheal Giles and Melanie Buckner in the JOURNAL OF POLITICS 58:4. The files available through the ICPSR include additional analysis and documentation not available in the published work, for purposes of verification or replication. The data were collected from government agencies and repackaged in part under funding from Harvard University's Mellon Dissertation Research Fellowship.
