Collection: Money in politics
Description: Data is from the Public Reporting System of the New York State Board of Elections. The bulk data download contains reported contributions from July of 1999 through August 11, 2021. 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 was created by combining columns related to contributions (schedules A-E) with those columns identifying the recipient committees and candidates filing the reports. New columns with normalized character strings are used for searches. Data processing was done using R software and is documented on The Accountability Project GitHub repository.
