Crossfiltering with Hawaii Campaign Finance Data

By looking at public data on state and county candidate contributions, expenditures, and disclosures published on data.hawaii.gov we can take a broad look at the amount of money influencing politics in Hawai‘i. Rather than focusing on individual candidates as has be done in other places, I wanted to quickly compare different aspects of the data that can otherwise remain hidden.

Click anywhere on the graphs or bar charts below to quickly filter results.

If you know of other data that should be added to this please let me know.

Technical Notes

Data was prepared using Open Refine.

This tool was built with Crossfilter and dc.js.
