About the data

Source of the data: Data used to build these visualization come from the 2010 Disclosure of Campaign Finances page on the City of Calgary Website (click here to display it).

Representativity of the data:The data visualizations analyze the financial disclosure statement submitted by 77 out 92 candidates who run for the 2010 municipal elections. The 15 other candidates declared running with an entirely self-funded campaign less than or equal to $10,000, and therefore were not subject to disclose a financial statement. You can find the list of these candidates on the City website.
