Visualizing Stock Trades Made By Members of Congress

Insider trading in Congress

The New York Times has created a series of visualizations tracking stock trades made by members of the U.S. Congress. The visualizations show the representatives or senators who reported trading a financial asset themselves or had an immediate family member who did from 2019 to 2021, as well as their political affiliation. One visualization narrows this category down to show the representatives whose work on a congressional committee may have given them insight into companies represented in the trades. According to the visualizations, 35 percent of Congress reported trading stocks and 18 percent of Congress reported a potential conflict. 

Take a look.
