Staff levels in the US Congress

‘Staffers’ working on committees, in members’ personal offices and in other Congressional roles help the 435 Representatives and 100 Senators in their daily work. In 2021, there were 9 034 staff working in the House of Representatives. While no figures for the Senate for 2021 were available at the time of writing, the figure for 2020 was 5 717. Over time, the proportion of committee staff appears to have decreased and personal staff increased (including in districts/states), notably in the Senate.
