 ```I would like to learn the following about contributions to federal candidates (candidates for U.S. Congress, U.S. Senate and the President), for a given election cycle (say, 2003-2004): 1. What was the total amount contributed to all candidates from individuals (not including contributions from PACs or other organizations)? 2. How much of the total in (1) came in contributions of \$10,000 or more? 3. What is the total number of these contributions of \$10,000 or more? 4. What was the total amount contributed to all candidates from PACs, parties, and other organizations (all contributions not from individuals)? 5. How much of the total in (4) came in contributions of \$10,000 or more? 6. What is the total number of contributions of \$10,000 or more, from all organizations? 7. How many organizational (non-individual) entities contribute to Federal candidates, subdivided by type? (How many PACs, how many party committees, etc). 8. If we sorted all the entities in (7) in order of total giving, starting from the biggest contributors, how many entities would be needed to make up 50% of total contributions? 80% of total contributions? I assume that it takes much less than 50% of the top PACs to make up 50% of the contributions. 9. How did you obtain this information? Thank you.``` Request for Question Clarification by easterangel-ga on 22 Aug 2006 19:02 PDT ```Hi!

 ```Bundling numerous questions together, as you've done here, may make it less likely that you will get an answer. Since all parts of the question must be answered in order for a Researcher to receive compensation, this presents a daunting task that may cause many Researchers to pass the question by. You will probably do better if you post each of these items as a separate question.```
