Four Ways to Slice Obama’s 2013 Budget Proposal

Shan Carter‘s latest interactive for The New York Times offers four ways to slice Obama’s 2013 federal budget proposal. The $3.7 trillion in spending can be analyzed by type of spending, changes to discretionary spending, department totals and of course all together. In all of the charts, the data is represented as bubbles. The size equals the proposed amount and the color indicates a cut or an increase in spending from 2012. Although each chart has an individual layout, the transitions between them is extremely smooth and helps the user to make sense of the underlying data.
