Death and Taxes: 2012 by mibi

A few years ago, on a trip to Vermont, I stumbled upon a great visualization of the entire US Budget. Please check it out below. The artist keeps updating it yearly. I find you can really understand where the money is going more easily this way, but that all of the details are included. But the details matter. Click through below to check it out.

Happy Independence Day!

  1. Makes my brain hurt. I have seen a couple visualizations using budget data, why haven’t I seen one of these looking at personnel data? OPM is super responsive to data requests – and the tools are certainly there. I’m sure this has been done, I just haven’t seen it.
