To ensure that our biennial employment index has a consistent temporal relationship with our voting variables, we restrict attention to general elections that occur in November of even years in California. To avoid any correlation between regional economic conditions and what appears on the ballot, we focus on only contests in which all voters in the state may participate. In our eight election years, 1990 to 2004, we cover four gubernatorial elections and 91 ballot contests. The 91 propositions include all general election ballot items for the years 1992 to 2004 and 10 of the 28 propositions on the 1990 general election ballot.* See more information in the published papar's Data Appendix.
