Staff levels in 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 2016, there were 9 420 staff working in the House of Representatives and 5 749 staff in the Senate. Over time, the proportion of committee staff appears to have decreased and personal staff increased (including in districts/states), notably in the Senate.
