Sunlight Foundation Capitol Words API MASTER RECORD

The Sunlight Foundation is a non-partisan, non-profit group that uses technology to make the U.S. government more transparent and accountable. Capitol Words is a tool for determining the frequency with which a given word is used in Congressional sessions over time. It provides relative frequency charts as well as the specific contexts in which the word was used. This provides a quick glimpse into what issues Congress is addressing on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis. The transcripts referenced by Capitol Words come from the website of the Government Printing Office and cover Congressional sessions from 1996 to the present.
