Abstract

In addition to information about the general elections which were held in the period 1920-1945, this study contains census information from the population censuses of the same period, as well as social statistics from the period 1934-1940 and tax and real property statistics from the period 1921-1946. #Comparisons on the municipal level between this study and (some of the) other studies containing municipal data are made diffi- cult by extensive changes and adjustments of municipality boundaries, which, of course, means a parallel redistribution of constituencies. Information about such changes, etc. has been collected in DDA-0019: Municipality Identification, 1909-1975, in order that this register may form the basis of necessary integration and aggregation procedures
