This zipped directory contains the raw data and the R programs and output files used to obtain the results reported in the Tables and Figures in the report on Franklin County precincts produced for the Democratic National Committee by Walter Mebane (franklin.pdf, June 18, 2005, ``Ohio 2004 Election: New Registrants, Provisional Ballots, Voting Machines, Turnout and Polls Open Elapsed Times in Franklin County Precincts''). That report is a supplement to the Ohio precincts study report produced for the Democratic National Committee by Walter Mebane and Michael Herron (Ohio_precincts.09june2005.pdf, ``Ohio 2004 Election: Turnout, Residual Votes and Votes in Precincts and Wards'').

The output files were produced by running R in BATCH mode in commands like

  R CMD BATCH --no-save franklin1.R

Hence the output file corresponding to program foo.R is foo.Rout.

The R program files that perform robust estimation of the overdispersed binomial regression model use a customized version of the package MultinomRob. That version of MultinomRob should be available soon through CRAN as Version 1.3 of the MultinomRob package.

Mebane, Walter R., Jr., and Jasjeet Sekhon. 2004b. "Multinomial Robust Regression (MultinomRob)." Package for R available from the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN, http://cran.r-project.org/).

To execute the R programs that use MultinomRob, install the package and in the R programs change

        library(multinomRob, lib.loc="/home/wrm1/lib/R/");



Or change the line to point to the directory where the package is installed. If you rerun the programs some of the robust estimation results may differ slightly from the ones in the files included in this distribution. This is primarily because the robust estimation algorithm is stochastic (different runs of the GENOUD search algorithm used to find the LQD estimates of the dispersion may produce slightly different results).
