GeoReferenced Electoral Districts Datasets – Beta 2

These georeferenced maps provide the boundaries for electoral districts and link to the constituencies for 74 countries in CLEA’s election archive. The electoral district maps are organized by country and maps are provided in three file formats: ESRI Geodatabase, open-source GeoPackage, and ESRI Shapefile. The GRED codebook describes how these file formats can be used. The current release of this data is a user-beware version. Although great care has been taken to prepare the data and codebook as accurately as possible prior to release, we would appreciate receiving your comments, feedback, and notification of errors. Please direct problems or questions about the data to clea-project@umich.edu.
