Note: The first row for each type of committee contains the number of committees with contributions within the column range.

The second row for each type is the percentage of all committees of that type who had contributions in the column range.

The third row contains the total dollars contributed by committees of that type in a particular range.

The fourth row represents the percentage of all dollars contributed by that type of committee made by committees in the column range.

For example, 182 corporate sponsored committees (9.99% of all corporate committees) made contributions of between $50,001 and $100,000 during 1997-98.

Those 182 committees contributed $12.8 million dollars, which was 16.4% of all corporate sponsored PAC contributions.
