Using the List Analysis Tabs
These tabs automatically analyze relationship data added by users and display it in ways that may be helpful for researchers, journalists and others. They are an easy way to filter complex networks and can save users a lot of manual tallying, but are not meant to offer an authoritative list of a person's or organization's closest affiliates. Relationships are merely counted, not weighted by importance or supported by original research. List analysis tabs are only available for lists of people.

The Interlocks tab shows the companies, government bodies and other organizations where members of the list have positions. The organizations with the most list members are displayed first.

The Giving tab shows the people and organizations that have received donations from members of the list, in order of amount donated. Advanced users can improve this tab by matching list members with donation data from Open Secrets.

The Funding tab shows the people and organizations that have given money to members of the list, in order of amount donated.
