While the data includes a description column, organizations have the option to manually input the descriptions. Using the organizations descriptions of the obligattion type, we can categorize the obligations in terms of types of work. We used the following type of work categories:

  • Active Transportation

  • Transit

  • Bridge

  • Street

  • Freeway

  • Infrastructure/Resiliency/Emergency Relief

  • Congestion Relief

With these categories, we can determine which organizations have the most obligations in that category and what percent of the category that organization accounts for.
