The data cover the 7th term (2009—2014) and come from Parltrack (May 24, 2014).
All networks are undirected graphs drawn with the Fruchterman-Reingold force-directed algorithm. The nodes are sized by weighted degree, using weights that are proportional to the number of bills cosponsored and inversely proportional to the number of sponsors on each bill (see Newman 2001 and Fowler 2006). When two or more nodes belong to the same group, any existing tie(s) between them is given the color of that group. There is a guide to party codes and colors at the end of this page.
