About this data: These are the assets disclosed for calendar year 2014 compiled by Roll Call. They are ranked from largest to smallest. Financial disclosure rules allow lawmakers to report broad ranges of minimums for both assets and liabilities, starting at $1 to $1,000 and topping out at $50 million or higher, so it is impossible to offer precise figures. The minimum values shown are how Roll Call calculated the net worth for each member.

Roll Call assigns assets and liabilities into several categories. The disclosure forms indicate if the asset or liability is owned solely by the member, by the member’s spouse, by the member’s dependent(s) or jointly owned by the member and spouse. The names of the assets and liabilities appear as they were entered on the forms filed with the clerk of the House and the Senate Select Committee on Ethics.
