Until now, search results were limited to staffers currently employed by a member of the House or Senate. Now users have the option to search both current and non-current staff profiles extending to the 100th Congress, which first convened in early 1987.

“This is an exciting new feature that will be very useful to users,” said Duncan Bell, Editorial Director for and manager of the new initiative. “We anticipate continued growth as more people come to better understand the versatility and breadth of our data.”

The database, which ascribes distinct public office hyperlinks to each Congress for which a staffer was employed, contains nearly 90,000 staffer-public office links. The new search function is currently available to subscribers.
