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 expenditures from July of 1999 through August 11, 2021. Each record represents a single payment made from a political committee or candidate to an outside vendor or separate campaign. The full data set was created by combining columns related to expenditures (schedule F) with those columns identifying the spending 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.
