Former Microsoft CEO Launches New Tool For Finding Government Data

A new project by former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer takes government data on spending and revenue and turns it into interactive graphics, like this breakdown of spending by local, state and federal governments in 2014.

On Tax Day, Steve Ballmer announced USAFacts — a website where anyone can look up where government money comes from, and how it’s spent, along with lots of other data.
