Government Spending Chart Wizard

Follow the simple steps below to make your own chart of government spending. You can select up to five spending functions to compare on a single chart.

If you want to chart taxes, go here.

Step One: Select the state and the years you want to chart.

US or individual state:

US or State: By default, the chart shows overall United States government spending. But you can select spending for individual states by selecting the state dropdown control in the table heading.

Data units:

Start Year: End Year:

Note: First year of available data for individual states is 1992.

If you want to chart data for a single year, go to the Numbers page.
If you want a pie chart, go to the Pie Chart page.

Step Two: Select the data you want to chart.

(Up to five allowed)

  (Click on dropdown to select the spending function you want)

Data Series: Select a spending series you want to chart from a dropdown on the left. If you select on the bottom dropdown you will add a data series (up to a maximum of five). The right-hand dropdown allows you to replace a data series with a more narrowly focused series. Click the “X” link to remove a data series from the chart.

 

 

 

 

Step Three: Select the chart characteristics.

Bar chart or line chart:

Line/Bar: By default, the data series are displayed as line charts. But you can also select a bar chart.

Stacked chart (or not):

Data Stack: By default, the data series are “stacked” when displayed on the chart. But you can change the setting to “un stack” the data series.

Chart size:

Chart Size: By default, the chart is displayed at medium size. But you can use the dropdown control to change the size.
small = 300x200, thin = 350x230, medium = 390x250, large = 550x300

Color or black-and-white:

Color: By default charts are displayed with color data lines and fill. You can change this to grayscale if you want.

Step Four: Display your chart.

Click button:

Don’t worry. You can add functions or change things later.
