This chart is based on meetings between White House officials and Google employees, or employees of Google-affiliated companies, such as Civis Analytics or Tomorrow Ventures, since President Obama took office in 2008. The data has been compiled from White House visitor access records.
Only small meetings of 15 attendees or fewer were included. Larger gatherings were generally excluded from the data unless they appeared to be policy discussions. The chart does not reflect visits that appeared to be part of White House tours, state dinners or events open to the general public, such as the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
In all cases, attempts were made to cross-reference the name of the Google employee meeting with a White House official to determine to as high a degree as possible that the person was in fact a Google employee at the time of the meeting and also that the person was not someone else with a similar name.X
