Collection: Money in politics
Description: Data is from the Pennsylvania Election and Campaign Finance System (ECF). The ECF provides a Full Campaign Finance Export by annual ZIP archives. Within each archive are files for contributions and the filers of the reports. Together they identify each transaction. 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.
