The Northern Ireland elections Excel archive

Thanks to a generous grant from the McDougall Trust, and the support of the Centre for Data Digitsation and Analysis at QUB, the Northern Ireland Elections site is now able to offer Excel spreadsheets covering every count of every election in Northern Ireland since 1973 (with by-elections still to be processed). As the Single Transferable Vote is used for almost all elections apart from Westminster elections in Northern Ireland - local government, the Northern Ireland Assembly (and in 1975 the Constitutional Convention), and the European Parliament - this is consequently the largest archive of STV elections anywhere in the world. (STV is also used for elections in the Republic of Ireland, Malta, Tasmania, elections for the Australian Senate, and some other places.)

The Excel spreadsheets are provided both as individual files and as archives for each full election. They can be found at the links below, the full list of files is here, and the full 25MB archive is here. NB that Westminster elections, and the 1996 Forum/talks election, were not carried out with the Single Transferable Vote.
