Length in days of confirmation processes of Senate-confirmed positions (in thousands)
A graph presents the uneven increase in time that it takes to confirm these positions.
This data was compiled by the Partnership for Public Service’s Center for Presidential Transition® and was gathered from Congress.gov. It includes civilian nominations with exceptions for part-time positions, judges, U.S. marshals, attorneys and positions in the legislative branch. The confirmation process is defined as the time between a president sending a formal nomination to the Senate and the confirmation vote.
