Collection: Money in politics
Description: Rhode Island expenditures data was obtained from the Rhode Island Secretary of State. Data is available from 2002 on and has been updated through 2019.
Each record is a single campaign expenditure made to an outside vendor for goods or services. The full data files contain all original columns. New columns with normalized data are used for searches. Data processing was done using open-source software and is documented on the Accountability Project GitHub repository.
Additional Notes: Django seems unable to determine delimiter. If I download the file from S3, the CSV opens fine in Excel.
