Collection: Money in politics
Description: Data is from the Arkansas Secretary of State's Financial Disclosure portal, where bulk data from 2017 to present can be downloaded in bulk. This data was updated on September 30, 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.
Additional Notes: This dataset is different from the "Arkansas campaign contributions" which pieced together previously available data from 2008 to 2017.
