The data are sensitive. The survey asks political brokers about their political careers and a variety of questions that pertain to clientelism and party strategy. Still, sharing the data with proper steps taken for anonymization will not put the respondents at risk. No question on the survey required that a respondent admit to illegal behavior. Many of the questions were phrased in third-person, which allowed a broker to share her knowledge of local distributive politics without implicating herself. The responses to open-ended questions asked during the survey, in which respondents may have provided information that could put them at risk, will be evaluated to ensure that the confidentiality promised to the respondent is respected. This project has secured IRB approval and the respondents were promised confidentiality, and so each shared transcript has been anonymized.
