    US Budget from 1962 to Present

      wanted to expand on the visualization that was produced by the White House on the budget. In more detail, I wanted to see all the budget years available, and then break it down into the the subcategories (Agencies, Bureaus, "Accounts"). I also tried to break down by year as well.

      I had some issues with cases where the budget had a positive cashflow. Let me know about any questions or concerns with the data. But I wanted to be able to break down in some historical view the data.

      Sources: https://github.com/WhiteHouse/2016-budget-data/tree/master/data

      Tools: http://www.tableausoftware.com/public/

      Dataset: https://github.com/WhiteHouse/2016-budget-data/blob/master/data/outlays.csv



      I will look to add new data in the future, but there seems to be varying inflation rates, so I want to make sure to grab the right information. I suppose I could make the budgets per capita, that could be quite interesting, too.
