Visualization of Austin lobbyist registrations.
Our plan is to take lobbyist registration data from data.austintexas.gov, convert it to show lobbying activity by various organizations on different dates, and make a visualization in D3.js.
There are probably still significant errors in our modified versions of the dataset. If you need accuracy, please get your data directly from data.austintexas.gov for now.
- lobbyistFromCity.csv: This is closest to the dataset provided by data.austintexas.gov
- lobbyistDedupe.csv: An intermediate step created by running csvdedupe to sort the previous dataset into clusters. Useful mainly for replicating our data cleaning process (see lobbyistsDedupe.ipynb).
- lobbyistTimeRange.csv: A list of time ranges when each lobbyist was employed by every client in the dataset.
- lobbyistByClient.csv: A list of how many lobbyists each client employed on every date (but without the lobbyists' names).
