We have updated our Nonprofit Explorer news application, adding raw data from more than 1.9 million electronically filed Form 990 documents dating back to 2010. This new trove includes the full text of more than 132,000 forms for which we did not previously have complete data.
In addition to making the machine-readable XML files available to download, we are publishing the full text of many of these documents as human-readable web pages. These appear similar to the PDFs that have appeared on Nonprofit Explorer in the past, but their text can be copy-and-pasted, and they are easier to browse and analyze.
You can find the XML and HTML of e-filed returns by clicking the buttons labeled “Full Text” and “Raw XML,” which appear on a nonprofit organization’s page under each year for which the data is available.
ur work on the XML-based data is just beginning. In the coming months, we will continue to improve Nonprofit Explorer and the Nonprofit Explorer API, providing users with new ways to explore and analyze tax-exempt organizations.
