Dataset derived from the 2006 Australian Census of Population and Housing, voting results for the 2007 Australian Federal election, and location of polling booths from the Australian Electoral Commission. Voting results data includes total and proportion of votes cast for each political party for all electoral divisions and polling booths in Australia. Coalition two party preferred and Labor two party preferred are also included in voting data. Polling booths and Census collection districts have been geocoded and spatially allocated to form polling both catchments. Demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the populations living within the polling booth catchments are measured using variables derived from the 2006 Census that cover age & sex, family & household structure, housing tenure, ethnicity/race, religious affiliation, residential stability/mobility, digital divide,engagement in work, occupation, industry of work, human capital, and income.

      <description type="full">Variables derived from the 2006 Australian Census of Population and
        Housing representing the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of populations
        living in polling booth catchments. 

        Polling booths and Census collection districts have
        been geocoded and spatially allocated to form polling both catchments. Demographic and
        socio-economic characteristics of the populations living within the polling booth 
        catchments are measured using 48 variables derived from the 2006 Census that cover age
        &amp; sex, family &amp; household structure, housing tenure, ethnicity/race, religious
        affiliation, residential stability/mobility, digital divide,engagement in work, occupation,
        industry of work, human capital, and income.  The dataset also includes location quotients
        comparing each variable's local value against the national benchmark for that variable.</description>
