The Cost of Gadgets


From Wired.com, this is really a 3-dimensional chart. I liked it because there are very few 3D charts that actually portray 3 dimensions of data. (This is actually 4D if you include the different products as a dimension) Usually 3D charts are just bad use of chart styles from PowerPoint. I also like the perspective from above. Although unusual, it helps to see the whole chart.

Where Does the Money Go?


From the nytimes.com, this graphic visually represents how average consumer spending breaks down, and the color code shows how much spending in that category has changed in the last year. For example, Gasoline is 5.2% of an average consumer's spending, and it has risen 26% from 2007 to 2008.

As far as I can tell, this is actually a treemap, but in a new shape. More details pop-up when you mouse over each of the individual shapes.

Thanks to Tony, for sending in the link.

Nichloas Felton's 2007 Annual Report


Nicholas Felton has published his new 2007 Annual Report. I love the way he breaks down his own personal life into maps and charts. I had just posted about his 2006 Annual Report last month.

Miraculous Logistics Behind Operation Christmas


Holiday Infoporn from Wired.com.

Here's our theory: There is, in fact, a nonsupernatural Santa. It's a transnational corporation with one mission-critical fulfillment goal: Every kid who celebrates the holiday gets a toy on Christmas eve.
Check out the side-scrolling timeline at the bottom. I think they should have included Chinese New Year.

Lotteries Profit, but Do Students?


Interactive graphic, from the NYTimes:

Lotteries in 42 states and the District of Columbia rake in billions of dollars, but much of the cash from ticket sales gets channeled back into prizes and lottery administration. States earmark the profits for programs like education, but the lottery dollars contribute only a small percentage of the total education funding.

Consumer Spending (5% on Tech Stuff)


From Wired magazine (issue 15.08) a treemap infographic of consumer spending in 2005. 5% of all consumer spending was on technology, and of course, Wired broke down that 5% into an expanded treemap.

Internet access +216%, Residential phone -25%. VOIP seems to be making an impact.

Death and Taxes 2008

NEW Death and Taxes infographic for 2008!


It is the 2008 Federal discretionary budget of the United States. is a representational poster of the federal discretionary budget; the amount of money that is spent at the discretion of your elected representatives in Congress. Basically, your federal income taxes. The data is from the President's budget request for 2008. It will be debated, amended, and approved by Congress by October 1st to begin the fiscal year.
So this is what the President is asking for, not the final budget. Compare this to the final 2007 discretionary budget from my earlier post.

An interactive Flash version is online at www.thebudgetgraph.com/poster.

Top Presidential Contributions 1Q


It's early for the 2008 election, but major campaign funding has already started. It will be interesting to see if more money early in the race makes a difference in the outcome.

Death and Taxes 2007


One of my favorite infographics is the Death and Taxes series.

This infographic visually breaks down the US Federal Discretionary Budget for 2007 into smaller and smaller bubbles. The actual values are also included as text, but the size of the bubbles instantly gives you an understanding of how the different budget items compare.

An online version in Flash is also available at thebudgetgraph.com

Just to be clear, this only shows the Discretionary Budget which totals $938 Billion. The total budget is $2.8 Trillion. Notice the circle in the background (just barely visible at the top and bottom) showing the National Debt of $9.35 Trillion.

One older version is the 2004 Budget.
