Description: Data is from the California Civic Data Coalition, an organization which refines the California Secretary of State's CAL-ACCESS database. It contains 7.2 million rows of data published on Thursday, Aug. 27, 2020. Each record represents a single expenditure made from a campaign committee to a sales vendor, another campaign, or as a loan repayment. The full data set contains all original variables and new variables added with minimally, consistently, and confidently normalized character strings. These normalized strings are those searched from the Accountability database. Data was processed using R software and is documented on the Accountability Project GitHub repository.
