Government Revenue Chart Wizard

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

If you want to chart spending, 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 revenue. But you can select revenue 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 revenue function you want)

Data Series: Select a revenue 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.

FY18 Budget Blueprint Released

On March 16, 2018 the Trump administration issued a Budget Blueprint outlining proposed changes to "discretionary" spending for Fiscal Year 2018. The following table shows the major changes to Budget Authority in excess of $2 billion per agency.

AgencyFY18 Change
in $ billion
Health and
Human Services
State and Intl Aid-10.9

Because usgovernmentspending spending data is based on Historical Table 3.2, it shows spending by function rather than by agency. Until Table 3.2 is published in the final version of the FY18 budget we cannot exactly predict how the Table 3.2 numbers will change at the subfunction level.

But we have applied the Budget Blueprint budget authority changes into the budgeted FY18 outlays by guessing the application of agency level changes to subfunction changes to give a rough feeling of what the Trump changes look like. You can check out what is going on here or here.

The numbers will change when the final FY18 federal budget numbers come out.
