Work on this repository is in its very early stages. I am currently still culling data from across IAM member pages:

Susan Park published a database of claims submitted to MDB accountability mechanisms between 1994 and 2016. I’ll eventually cross-reference my work against this resource—thank you, Dr. Park. It might also be interesting to re-create Glass Half Full.

I would ulitmately like to build a tool that pulls and re-organizes these data into a common framework. I am working toward this end on Observable.
