Core 1998 PC File: LEGEXP (Schedule A, Part III, L1: lobbying expenses). (Technical Note).

The Core 1998 PC file was updated on April 17th, 2008. The variable LEGEXP (lobbying expenses reported in Schedule A, Part III, Line 1 of the F990) was updated for the Johns Hopkins University with EIN = '520595110'.

We discovered that lobbying expenses for the Johns Hopkins University was wrongly reported as $ 528,564,000 while the number in reality is $ 528,564. The mistake is probably due to the fact that the number had been assumed in thousands, so 3 zeroes had been added to the lobbying expense value. However, a comparison of LEGEXP for the Johns Hopkins University over several years, leads us to believe that the $528,564,000 lobbying amount for 2005 should be $528,564.

Here is a table of our comparison of LEGEXP over a few years:


Fiscal Year LEGEXP

1998 528,564,000

1999 579,695

2000 no amount entered even though "yes" for legexp

2001 566,029

2002 761,440

2003 623,546
