Net Worth, 2014

It is difficult to gauge what a lawmaker is worth based on what they file because the disclosure forms do not require exact values. Instead, the lawmaker reports the range of value into which an asset, for example, falls. As the values increase, the ranges get broader. To calculate net worth, shown here, CRP added together the lawmaker's range of assets and then subtracted their range of liabilities. We then calculate the midpoint of the resulting range and use this figure to rank the filers. Using this method provides a ranking that more closely reflects reality than using either the minimum or maximum values. (Read more about our methodology.) Valuation of very large assets owned by an individual is limited by the top range being over $50 million, and spouse or dependent child assets are limited by the top range of over $1 million. When further research definitively revealed a more accurate figure, it was used in place of the range.
