PB Process Data Submission Form
Thanks for helping us keep our database of Participatory Budgeting (PB) processes in the US and Canada up to date! Please submit any new data about PB processes or corrections to our existing data in the form below. We'll make the change as soon as possible. Don't worry if you don't have information about all the detailed questions, please just submit what you have. Also keep in mind that if you are involved with administering a PB program, the Participatory Budgeting Project has tools for setting up evaluation processes that yield information that is highly valuable for communities implementing PB as well as researchers studying it.

Your answer
Vote Year and Month
Your answer
Idea Collection Year and Month
Your answer
Total Population of Jurisdiction
The number of people in the community that the PB process is engaging with. For instance, if it is district-level PB, then this question is looking for the total population of that district (even if voting is restricted to ages 12 and up, the total population of the district is suitable since younger children are part of the community). For PB in organizations like schools, more specific data is preferred. For example, if it is high school PB that engages only second-year students, then this question is looking for the number of students just in that grade.
Your answer
Number of Voters
A count of the number of total unique voters in your PB process.
Your answer
Number of Volunteers
