This dataset contains a list of all financial affairs disclosures (formerly F1) for the last 12 years including attached schedules. It only includes the most recent submission for a given filing period, not any prior versions for the same reporting period.
The following table lists all the fields of this dataset, the field type and a brief description.

The legacy report number for financial affairs disclosures due prior to January 1, 2020.
Legacy unique id assigned to a candidate. The filer id is consistent across election years with the exception that an individual running for a second office in the same election year will receive a second filer id. There is no correlation between the two. For non-candidate submissions, this value can be used to correlate legacy records with newer records bit the person_id should be preferred because it is consistent even for filers running for multiple offices in the same year.
