Summary
This dataset belongs to a three-part study on American representation conducted shortly before and after the 1958 congressional election (see also AMERICAN REPRESENTATION STUDY, 1958: CANDIDATES [ICPSR 7226] and AMERICAN REPRESENTATION STUDY, 1958: CANDIDATE AND CONSTITUENT, PARTY [ICPSR 7292]). The survey administered to the candidates was designed to elicit information on what they considered to be the most important issues of the campaign, their views on these issues, and their perceptions of the positions of their constituents. The candidates were also asked what influenced them, and what they felt influenced the outcome of the campaign. Derived measures calculate 85th Congress roll-call scores on social welfare, foreign involvement, and civil rights issues. Roll-call data and information on committee activities of the congressmen are also provided. The combined candidate and constituent files (this collection and ICPSR 7292) contain the same candidate information as in ICPSR 7226, but are structured around the district as unit of analysis. This data collection provides candidate and constituent data organized by incumbency status of candidates, while ICPSR 7292 is organized by party identification of the candidates. In addition to the survey information on the candidates, this collection contains data on constituents taken from the 1956, 1958, and 1960 AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDIES (ICPSR 7214, 7215, and 7216) for 114 of the 146 districts. Demographic information on candidates includes sex, race, year of birth, size of birthplace, highest graduate degree, prior occupations, public offices previously held, several indices of spatial mobility, religious preference, and ethnic background
