2020 Tracker Methodology
Ad spend data is drawn from the Facebook Ad Library Report (which includes Instagram) and the Google Transparency Report (which includes all Google properties, notably Search and YouTube).
Spend numbers include official campaign spending. For Donald Trump, we include the sum of Donald J. Trump for President and the Trump Make American Great Again Committee as it is a joint fundraising committee of the RNC and Donald J. Trump for President. Otherwise, we do not currently include PAC or other money spent on behalf of a candidate.
Demographic and Geographic data is estimated from the Facebook Ad Library API. Based on the spend ranges provided by Facebook for each creative, we project an actual spend number as a proportion of the total reported weekly spend.
Topics are classified based on keyword searches. Ad spend data is projected in the same way as Demographic and Geographic data.
