#' Black voting rates for Wallace for President, 1968
#' 
#' This data set contains, on a county level, the proportion of county
#' residents who are Black and the proportion of presidential votes cast for
#' Wallace.  Demographic data is based on the 1960 census. Presidential returns
#' are from ICPSR study 13.  County data from 10 southern states (Alabama,
#' Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South
#' Carolina, Tennessee, Texas) are included. (Virginia is excluded due to the
#' difficulty of matching counties between the datasets.)  This data is
#' analyzed in Wallace and Segal (1973).
