This note, based on financial disclosure statements filed by members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 1979, examines the nature, extent, and distribution of financial interests among members of Congress. After a brief description of the amount and types of holdings, differences between Democrats and Republicans, among members of varying seniority, and among committee members and nonmembers in key areas are examined.
