In the data, each year's budget is presented as budget spending accounts, where each account has one broad function, and one more specific sub-function. However, the name of the account, not the function or sub-function, seems to give the most understanding into the type of social benefit the account creates. From the view of a single word, one can see the benefit of the budget most succinctly. The Words of the Budget explores the US federal spending broken down by word.
