Testing for pork, II

Michael Ward updates his previous analysis of the stimulus bill:
I came across data from the house appropriations committee by data and area of spending (Aid to States, Educ, Job Training, Trans) as reported by the WSJ. Still I cannot vouch for how genuine they are.

Still, I load these data into STATA and regressed log dollars per capita against the fraction of Democrats in the states' House and number of Democrats in their Senate delegations. There still appears to be evidence of pork, this time from the Senate.
