Collection: Money in politics
Description: Data is from the Maine Ethics Commission’s public data portal. The files are organized by year from 2008 to 2020. Each record represents a single monetary or in-kind contribution made to a committee or candidate by an individual or some other business entity. 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.
