ProPublica’s Nonprofit Explorer web-based application has been augmented with newly available Form 990 data from the IRS. The nonprofit news organization has added,
“raw data from more than 1.9 million electronically filed Form 990 documents dating back to 2010,”
including new information on 132,000 non-profits not previously available from the ProPublica website. Academic researchers and media covering nonprofits are likely to be especially happy with the development.
ProPublica has updated Nonprofit Explorer with the machine-readable data, making it easier to copy and paste Form 990 information from the ProPublica website. Media reporters and researchers with relevant computer tools can download the XML data for comparative analysis. ProPublica plans to work on the Nonprofit Explorer interface in the coming months to add functionality and “new ways to explore and analyze tax-exempt organizations.”
