Direct elections for the prime minister were conducted only 3 times - in 1996, 1999 and 2001 - before the Knesset decided to cancel them and return to a single procedure of elections for the Knesset. The results of the 2001 elections were published at the end of 2004 by Prof. Abraham Diskin who processed the data and prepared the publication for the Supervisor of general Elections. Since the published computer files included only polling station records, further processing was required in order to prepare full election results for localities and for Statistical Areas (SA). This was done by ISDC staff who merged the results of the polling stations with geographic indices provided by the Central Bureau of Statistics. The dataset includes for each polling station: code of locality, name of locality (Hebrew and English), SA, polling station code, eligible voters, actual voters, valid votes and their distribution among the two candidates: Ehud Barak and Ariel Sharon. The same summarized data items are included in the locality and SA records.
