New housedata release 20100923

September 23, 2010

I’ve just released an updated version of the HouseData file. There are 49,914 filings from 7897 committees going back to early 2001. Several important fixes to the data collection methodology have been applied to pull in earlier and earlier data. The utility library for reading FEC filings ,FECHell, still does not support version 3 filings so electronic files from the late 90′s and early 2000s are still touch and go. The Housedata page has a data description and the latest download links. Feedback is encouraged and greatly appreciated- jjh
