New Housedata release with October 2010 filings.

less than 1 minute read

I'd like to announce the availability of the latest Offensive Politics Housedata file. This file covers 51,463 individual electronic FEC filings for US House committees from 2001 to 10/18/2010. The latest file can be downloaded here:

A data description and example usage of the file can be found at the HouseData page. Starting with this version a new automated cleaning procedure has been implemented for every release. The cleaning roughly looks like:

  1. Fix missing states
  2. Fix incorrectly formatted floats
  3. Fix incorrect or missing districts
  4. Fix at-large districts to zero

Comments and questions are always appreciated.
