Description: Data is obtained from the Massachusetts Office of Campaign and Political Finance (OCPF). The data is provided as a Microsoft Access database file. The master reports table was joined against the table of contributions to identify the recipients. 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.
