How Our Money Is Spent

Created by:

This visualization considers the questions 'How can I get a meaningful sense of my tax contributions in context of the total government budget, and how does this change over time?' In data samples taken over 15 years, it shows the patterns of how our taxes are distributed across government functions and compares this to our collective taxes. It also shows our taxes in the context of total government budgets so that we can see proportionally how much we support our government.
