Understanding the data

New Detail in Categories

Dig deeper with revamped categories for 2023 โ€“ e.g. find Pharmaceutical Companies as a subset of Pharma & Private Health Industry .

Categories are determined from publicly available info about a corporation. Category list >

Donor Recipients / Party Names / Groups

Party names are in the format Short Name - State, e.g. Liberal - NSW

Where possible, parties are grouped into federal structures. e.g. to find all coalition parties Party Group = Liberal/National

‘Donations’ vs ‘Other Receipts’

Only some transactions in this dataset are officially considered donations by the AEC.

Many are listed as ‘other receipts’, which can be like a donation, but sometimes not. Confusing, right? Get the full story and find out how AEC disclosures work >

Rows link back to source data

Every row links back to a record on the AEC Transparency Register to allow for easier cross-checking.

A major AEC site redesign in 2020 broke most of our old links, but we’ve recently re-constructed them. Happy hunting.
