This data is associated with article: Understanding the modern election campaign: Analysing campaign eras through financial transparency disclosures at the 2019 UK general election.

This dataset presents how political parties spent their money at the 2019 UK General Election. The dataset was constructed by manually coding invoices published by the Electoral Commission on their Political Finance Database, available at: https://search.electoralcommission.org.uk/.

We developed codes inductively, attempting to capture the different types of activities described within the data set. We identified nine ‘macro’ categories within which there are 41 subcategories, described below. The dataset is presented alongside data points provided by the Electoral Commission, including the political party name, supplier name, amount spent, and the Electoral Commission’s own spending categories. Each of these are detailed in the codebook.
