Collection: Money in politics
Description: Data is obtained from the Indiana Election Division. Data was scraped from the data download page on October 28, 2020. Each record represents a single contribution made to a campaign committee from an individual contributor or a business. 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.
