Network Analysis

This diagram visualizes political connections between industries and politicians. We measure these connections by combining the politicians who sponsor congressional bills with the firms in the industry that lobby on those bills. We then weight the measure based on the lobbying expenses reported in each lobbying report. Users may specify a set of NAICS industries of their own interest in the search box.
