"The statistics in the Color of Money demonstrate the point we all know intuitively: communities of color and the poor are severely underrepresented because of their inability to keep pace with the campaign contributions from wealthier, non-minority communities. The disparity underscores why legislators spend 100 hours on telecommunications reform and 10 hours on welfare reform."

-Dr. William E. Spriggs, Executive Director, National Urban League Institute for Opportunity and Equality

Methodology

Campaign finance data

Campaign finance data include all contributions from individuals of more than $200 to federal candidates, political action committees (PACs) and political parties, totaled by the zip code listed by the donor. Percentages to parties are based on individual contributions to candidates and party committees; however, they exclude contributions to Political Action Committees (PACs), which do not have a party affiliation. The data were provided by the Center for Responsive Politics (www.opensecrets.org), a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to analyzing campaign finance data from the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

For more detailed information on campaign finance data, please click here.


Race and Ethnicity

U.S. 2000 Census data were provided by the Lewis Mumford Center at the University of Albany (http://mumford1.dyndns.org/cen2000/report.html). The categorization of the population into racial and ethnic categories is rife with complexities. Increasingly Americans identify as more than one race and/or ethnicity. The American Hispanic population is incredibly diverse, representing a wide variety of national backgrounds and cultures.
