Or, study the past with our Historical Lobbying Data, providing a bulk set of datasets for each year of recorded lobbying: from 1999-2021.
Intelligently Designed & Curated Data Quality
Our Historical (1999-2021) Lobbying Data package is targeted towards academics, journalists, and civic activists and includes a set of datasets, each corresponding with their respective year and spanning 360+ variables. Please download the data dictionary below for a more detailed explanation.
Our Daily Data Subscription package is targeted towards financial institutions and is built in the same way as the historical data, but is regenerated every day to account for the latest lobbying contracts and sent to your inbox with a series of informative data tables every morning.
Each lobbying record is associated with at least one of 78 issue areas. Our data design allows you to easily filter each record by any issue of your choosing; perfect for regressions. If listed, easily learn which firms lobby on exact bills posited by congress.
