For frequency counts for the roll call data see Democrat and Republican Party Voting Splits Congresses 35 - 109.

The roll call vote files have the same format as the files furnished by the ICPSR for Congresses 1 - 101. The ICPSR ID numbers assigned to members elected before the 102nd Congress are continued in these files. New members have been assigned unique numbers. In the Senate, if a newly elected member served previously in the House, he/she was given the ICPSR ID number used in the House. If a newly elected member did not serve in Congress before, then numbers beginning with 49100 were used in the 102nd Senate; numbers beginning with 49300 were used in the 103rd Senate; numbers beginning with 49500 were used in the 104th Senate; and numbers beginning with 49700 were used in the 105th Senate; numbers beginning with 49900 were used in the 106th Senate; numbers beginning with 40100 were used in the 107th Senate; numbers beginning with 40300 were used in the 108th Senate; and numbers beginning with 40500 were used in the 109th Senate. In the 102nd House, numbers beginning with 29100 were assigned new members; numbers beginning with 29300 and 39300 were assigned new members in the 103rd House; numbers beginning with 29500 were assigned new members in the 104th House; and numbers beginning with 29700 were assigned new members in the 105th House; numbers beginning with 29900 were assigned new members in the 106th House; numbers beginning with 20100 were assigned new members in the 107th House; numbers beginning with 20300 were assigned new members in the 108th House; and numbers beginning with 20500 were assigned new members in the 109th House.

Only Yes (1), No (6), Not Voting/Not Ascertained (9), and Not in Congress at the time of the Roll Call (0) are recorded. The Yes-No marginals will usually match those reported by Congressional Quarterly for the Senate but the House marginals will differ in the 102nd and 103rd because the voting of delegates from D.C. and the various territories is not recorded. In addition, Congressional Quarterly codes for pairs and announceds and corrects its data if a member later changes his or her vote.
