Collection: Money in politics
Description: Idaho expenditures data was obtained from the Idaho Secretary of State. Data was combined two sources: Annual bulk files for the years 1994 through 2018 and a newer search portal for all expenditures since 2020. As of March 2022, the Secretary of State's office has confirmed that all expenditures for the entire calendar year of 2019 are unavailable in tabular format from either of these two sources.
Each record is a single campaign expenditure made to an outside vendor for goods or services. The full data files contain all original columns. New columns with normalized data are used for searches. Data processing was done using open-source software and is documented on the Accountability Project GitHub repository.
