Congressional Staffers: Who Are The People Behind The Scenes In Washington? (INFOGRAPHIC)

Posted: Updated:

While we all may know who's directly representing us in Congress, most people don't know very much about the people behind the scenes making sure our government runs smoothly.

National Journal, in preparation for their upcoming "Hill People" issue, put together this infographic, which delves deep into the demographics of over 300 top-level congressional staffers. The Journal looked a number of factors, including education, background, experience, and even marital status.

It gives you a real feel for just who's doing all the work.
