Congressional SALNs are part of our public record. Let's explore how much declared wealth our legislators have. Hover over the bars or names to see details. Play with the charting options below.
Interesting questions to ask yourself as you play with the data:
Does the legislator with the highest liabilities have the lowest net worth?
Which legislators have the most real estate wealth?
Why is there such a dramatic difference in declared wealth between the richest and the poorest legislators?
From a technical perspective, this d3 interactive combines tooltips and multiple transition types. Every transition is specifically defined to a degree you can't get from an out-of-the-box solution like highcharts.js. It's also correspondingly more work.
