This chapter considers several kinds of data that might show evidence of reinforcing or ameliorating tendencies in the paucity of organized representation for the resource deprived. It investigates whether, within any category, the organizations that have Washington representation are stratified by organizational size or budget. The chapter uses survey data about individual members of voluntary associations to query whether those who are active or are mobilized to political action in organizations and those who consider that the organization represents them are representative of all organization members. Finally, this chapter scrutinizes evidence gathered from organizations' websites to inquire whether the resource disadvantaged are gaining representation from other, perhaps more privileged, organizations in the pressure system.

Keywords:   resource deprived, resource disadvantaged, organized representation, Washington representation, survey data, voluntary associations, websites
